Get the full lowdown on each of this week's Round 26 matches as NRL sides look to clinch a crucial top-eight spot or end their 2014 campaign on the right note.

As plenty of people tipped at the start of the year, the two sides that kicked the season off are potentially facing off for a minor premiership.

Hypothetically it's do-or-die for both the Storm and Broncos this weekend, with nothing short of victory keeping each team in the finals hunt.

Just one more week - that's the situation for two outfits that are bringing to a close arguably the most tumultuous years in their club's respective histories.

This is it Eels fans - a year of such promise and excitement could all come to an end in the nation's capital on Saturday night. Or not.

It is testament to the closeness of the 2014 season that after 26 Rounds, the battle for the JJ Giltinan Shield could come down to points differential.

For the first time in 2014, the Dragons go into a game knowing they won't play finals footy. Will that affect their chances against a resurgent Knights outfit?

Titans players will be out to avenge some recent poor losses and impress newly-signed coach Neil Henry as they look to dent the Bulldogs' finals hopes.

Penrith are chasing a top-four spot and the Warriors are most likely fighting for their season, this game also affects a host of other sides' finals placings.
