The fight for eighth position is heating up. Most have written off the Bulldogs who are on twenty-four points and have a negative points differential.
But they can still make it.
With the Knights losing to the Broncos tonight, if the Bulldogs win their final two matches, this will take them to twenty-eight points. If both the Knights and South Sydney lose next weekend, then these two teams play each other in the final round of the regular season. They would be on twenty-six points going into the game. Whichever team wins would then move to twenty-eight points, and having a superior for and against than the Bulldogs, this would mean the winner going through to the finals series.
Of course, if the match went to extra time and at the end of this still ended up a draw, then the Bulldogs would secure the coveted eighth spot.
