It is the time of the year when the NRL Ladder Predictor gets a daily workout and every rugby league fan has their own opinion on who will make the Telstra Premiership finals.

Tonight on NRL Daily, hosts John Gibbs and Trent Barrett reveal their predictions for the teams that will still be playing in September.

“The beauty of the competition is that it’s such a lottery,” says Gibbs. “Even with four matches remaining nobody could say with full confidence team A will beat team B.” 

“If I were to predict the makeup of the finals I would say the Bulldogs have the minor premiership wrapped up and deservedly so. 

“I think the bunnies will definitely be in the top four and with the ladder the way it is now I don’t think they’ll mind where they finish as long as it’s not third.

“If they finish seconnd they’ll be at ANZ stadium in front of a local crowd and if they finish fourth they’ll be playing the Bulldogs also at ANZ stadium in front of what will be a massive home crowd as well.”

Trent has a simple philosophy for the finals, saying the top four won’t change and the winner will be amongst them.

“I think the Sea Eagles are the team to watch,” says Barrett, who expects them to come storming home as the dark horse of the competition.
