  1. Hull FC or Castleford for fifth play-off spot?

    Hull FC v St Helens (19:45 BST)

    It’s not just at the bottom of the table where there’s something to be decided tonight…

    Castleford’s defeat by Wigan on Thursday left the door open for Hull FC to claim the fifth and final play-off spot in Super League.

    The Black and Whites will finish above the Tigers if they beat runaway leaders St Helens.

    You can feel the excitement and the anxiety around the stadium. The Hull KR fans are probably feeling the pressure the most because they’re coming up against the form team in Super League.

    Alongside Brian Noble, Dave Woods is hosting a Super League special on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra this evening, with commentary of Wakefield v London – click on the coverage option above to listen online.

    There will also be regular updates from the matches involving Huddersfield and Hull KR as the solitary relegation spot is decided.

  6. Who’s for the drop?

    I think it’ll be London, but who on earth would back against them?!

    They weren’t favourites to beat Toronto in the Million Pound Game last year and they won there. They had to go to Hull KR last week and win, and they did.

    To win 10 games this season and be in this position – they have nothing to lose.

  7. The relegation permutations

    This is how the bottom of the table looks going into tonight’s final round of regular-season fixtures…

    The scenario for London is straightforward. Lose to Wakefield and they’ll be relegated, win and they’ll stay up – leaving the other three sides in a very precarious position.

    Even if Wakefield are beaten by the Broncos, both Huddersfield AND Hull KR would need to win to send Trinity down (barring an unlikely swing in points difference).

    Rovers and the Giants will be safe if they win, regardless of the result at Belle Vue, but defeats for either would leave them relying on scores from elsewhere to survive.

  8. Post update

    With one match of the regular season remaining, four clubs are all still in danger of being relegated from Super League.

    For London Broncos, Hull KR, Wakefield Trinity and Huddersfield Giants, it promises to be a real nail-biter…
