I think it is very important to bump ourselves up to 4th Place for the Super 8's/

If we finish 4th, and all other places stay the same, then our games would be:

Home
Cas
Wigan
St Helens
Wakefield

Away
Huddersfield
Salford
Leeds

If we stay in 5th place, then our games will be:

Home
Leeds
Huddersfield
St Helens

Away
Wigan
Cas
Wakefield
Salford

4th position does look a better run of games, especially the home games. If we finish 4th, then I think we can win 5 out of 7, maybe 6. If we finish 5th, then I can only see 3 or 4 wins

If they play like they can do when they cut out the stupid & careless errors/penalties and stop gifting the opposition possession and field position then finishing 5th won't be a problem as the team are good enough to beat any of the teams. Conversely play like they have done like the last 3 games, finishing 4th won't make a difference and we'll bow out the season end without so much as a whimper.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!

Tbh I'd be surprised if any team does better than a W5 L2 record this year.

Much depends of the cup semi finals. Leeds have given themselves a bit of leeway recently and could afford to lose a few games if they get to Wembley and still be in the playoffs. Yourselves, Salford and Wigan haven't got that room for losses that is strong possibility when you get to Wembley.

I think we just need to focus on getting the win v Huddersfield and then deal with the fixtures take care of themselves.

Win and we have every chance of finishing in the Top 4 (probably 3rd/4th with a play off game at Cas or Leeds).

Obviously getting to Wembley and defending the Cup, would reduce this chance, but think we'd be a bit more experienced in how we deal with the business end of this season.

I think either fixtures are fine our away form has been better than when we play home, think we will step it up in Super8s this year IMO
