Have to agree with KS and Cunno on this one. Whilst the Titans certainly haven't had a great season, they still have some very good players in their team and they are determined to finish the year on a high, after winning their last couple of games. As long as the Tigers go into the game with complete respect for the opposition, they should win, but I certainly don't expect it to be a walkover.

If we and the Cowboys both finish for example plus 78 but have different fors and against what is more important to get 4th spot
The attack or defence for example
Tigers 490 for 412 against
Cowboys 478 for 400 against
Who gets 4th ????
I'm not completely certain, Happy, but I think the nod would go to the team with the most points scored. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, anyone. Seriously hoping it won't come down to this though!

i'm pretty sure the next thing they go off is which team has scored the most tries

I think you will find that it will go to the team with the higher % so it would be the side who has scored less as their scoring % is higher and it would indicate they are a better all round side.

I think the team that concedes the least points gets the nod.

I think it id decided by paper, scissors, rock. In the classic best of 3 method.

It is an interesting question tho.

Yes pretty sure the team that concedes the fewer points is placed higher because they will have a higher percentage (or ratio?) calculation.

For example WT finish with 480pts for, and 400pts against; a difference of +80 points.
Cowboys finish with 550pts for, and 470pts against; also a difference of +80 points.

WT are placed higher because their percentage is higher (480/400=1.2) than the Cowboys (550/470=1.17).

That's how I heard Warren Ryan explain it recently.

But there's not a lot wrong with scissors paper rock!!
