Cronulla's thrilling late win over the Warriors made the 2020 finals picture a whole lot clearer, locking in the top eight.
Positions within the eight are still to be settled while the wooden spoon race is effectively down to two teams while the Titans' late charge keeps them in with a realistic chance of finishing as high as ninth.
The scenarios for all 16 teams Panthers (currently 1st, 33 points) Best/worst case:
1st to 2nd
A convincing win over fellow top-four side and local rivals Parramatta confirmed a top-two finish and brought the minor premiership a big step closer.
Storm (currently 2nd, 30 points) Best/worst case:
1st to 3rd
Did enough against the Cowboys despite a late fade-out and in the process ruled out the chances of finishing fourth or lower, with a top-two finish theirs to lose.
Roosters (currently 3rd, 26 points) Best/worst case:
2nd to 5th
Massive win over the Knights lifts them to third and removes any chance of them finishing sixth or lower. Very unlikely to slip out of the top four now and retain an unlikely chance of going as high as second.
