The finals teams have now been decided as we prepare for the first round of finals this weekend. It is the first time in the 111-year history of the premiership that the Top 4 have all finished on the same competition points (34).


The Roosters 44-10 win against the Eels means they enter the first round of finals on top of the ladder. It was an expected win for the dominant Roosters, leaving the Eels to finish their season at the very bottom of the table.


It was an easy win for the Broncos also, thrashing the second-to-last Sea Eagles 48-16 on Sunday. Brisbane will now take on the 7th placed Dragons in the first round of finals on Sunday at Suncorp Stadium.


The Sharks have finished the season in 4th after defeating the Bulldogs 30-18 at ANZ Stadium. Sharks fullback Valentine Holmes scored his 21st try for the season, helping lead the team to success on Sunday. The Sharks will now face the Roosters on Saturday in the first round of finals, with the winner earning themselves a spot in a grand final qualifier.
