The NRL.com Ladder Predictor heading into Round 24 of the 2016 Telstra Premiership.

NRL.com predicts the top eight

With four rounds remaining in the NRL Telstra Premiership, the team at NRL.com has used Ladder Predictor to come up with their final top eight for 2016.

The Melbourne Storm and Cronulla Sharks appear to have the top two spots sewn up and could be playing for the minor premiership when they meet at AAMI Park in Round 26.

Canberra, Canterbury, North Queensland and Brisbane are fighting it out for the remaining two spots in the all-important top four, but all four clubs look assured of playing at least some part in the finals. The Round 25 clash between the Bulldogs and Cowboys at Belmore Sportsground could be crucial in deciding a top four spot.

The Penrith Panthers, Warriors, Wests Tigers and Gold Coast Titans are the teams in a four-way battle for the last two finals spots, while the Sea Eagles and Dragons are only mathematical chances of playing finals footy.

Here's how the NRL.com team sees the top eight finishing:
