A few of the stars of Round 19 of the Telstra Premiership season.

With seven rounds remaining in the 2015 Telstra Premiership season, it's make-or-break time for each team's chances of making the finals – or at least finishing the campaign on a high. Will your team make the top eight?

The team have made predictions via the NRL Ladder Predictor, combining our final standings to come up with the following rankings – with Brisbane set to pip fellow Queensland powerhouses the Cowboys to the minor premiership on for-and-against. predicted final 2015 ladder:

1st - Broncos

The current league leaders have surpassed all expectations in Wayne Bennett's first year back at the club and should hold on to claim the minor premiership.

The Run Home: Broncos

2nd - Cowboys

With a sensational away winning streak, North Queensland's woes on the road are a thing of the past and we predict they'll come within a whisker of finishing on top.

The Run Home: Cowboys

3rd - Roosters

The Tricolours are the bookies' favourites for the premiership and are hitting top form at the right time, with no injury worries and a team packed with stars. 

The Run Home: Roosters

4th - Storm

They've lost Billy Slater for the season but Melbourne have a favourable schedule in the run home and could sneak into the top four, earning a second chance in the finals series.

The Run Home: Storm

5th - Rabbitohs

The reigning premiers have come back to the pack after a sensational start to the year, and despite a tough last stretch of the season they should be strong enough to earn a home final even if they miss out on a top-four finish.

The Run Home: Rabbitohs

6th - Warriors

The Warriors have more line breaks – and errors – than any other team in the competition, and will need to find some consistency to match their attacking threat if they are to be a genuine contender come finals time.

The Run Home: Warriors

7th - Bulldogs

Canterbury have a tricky run to the finals but have overcome most of their injury problems and should sneak into the top eight – and they showed last season they are capable of playing their way into the grand final from anywhere.

The Run Home: Bulldogs

8th - Dragons

A superb start to the season has been followed by six straight defeats for the Red V, but we're backing the Dragons to grab the last spot in the top eight – just.

The Run Home: Dragons 

9th - Sharks

Opinions vary greatly in the office about where the Sharks will finish – some rate Cronulla as a genuine premiership dark horse and others feel they'll just miss the eight. They have four tough games in the next month but if they can jag a win or two they'll be in with a genuine finals chance.

The Run Home: Sharks

10th - Raiders

Canberra have already surpassed the critics' expectations this season and with six of their last seven games coming against bottom-eight teams they could finish 2015 with a bang.

The Run Home: Raiders

11th - Panthers

Penrith have been hit hard by injuries for a second straight season, but this time around they look unlikely to repeat last year's run to the finals.

The Run Home: Panthers

12th - Sea Eagles

Manly are a more talented team than their ladder position suggests but after Monday's loss to North Queensland their finals chances appear to be dead and buried.

The Run Home: Sea Eagles

13th - Eels

Chris Sandow's suspension and season-ending injuries to Anthony Watmough and Danny Wicks are just the latest blows to hit Parramatta this year. They should be safe from the wooden spoon but are long odds to play finals football.

The Run Home: Eels

14th - Knights

One of three genuine contenders for the wooden spoon, Newcastle will be boosted by a confident win over the Titans last round and the return to form of key playmaker Jarrod Mullen.

The Run Home: Knights

15th - Wests Tigers

Robbie Farah remains sidelined for now with a broken hand and the Tigers' young guns will be up against it to climb off the foot of the ladder without him.

The Run Home: Wests Tigers

16th - Titans

The return of Aidan Sezer this week could spark a revival for the Titans, but they badly need it after a run of four losses. They finish last in our rankings on for-and-against but any win in the run home could save them from the wooden spoon.

The Run Home: Titans
