  NRL 2020: Round 19 team lists After the round 18 games, the top eight is finally set in stone and now it's all about building momentum into the finals series. Cronulla's win over the Warriors on Sunday night secured their spot in the playoffs, with Todd Payten's side missing out and everyone else too far behind. Newcastle were taught a huge lesson by the reigning premiers on Saturday night, while the Storm and Panthers continued their winning ways.

The NRL Round 20 teams have been revealed.

There’s a difference in tactics at the top of the NRL ladder, with the Penrith Panthers, Melbourne Storm and Canberra Raiders all electing to rest several stars ahead of their final home-and-away matches, whereas the Parramatta Eels go in relatively unchanged and the Sydney Roosters have brought in reinforcements.

The Chooks will welcome back James Tedesco, Boyd Cordner and Jake Friend ahead of their Friday night clash with archrivals South Sydney, in stark contrast to some of their fellow top four sides.

The NRL’s top eight is set, but the Roosters, Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm are heavy favourites

  The NRL’s top eight is set, but the Roosters, Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm are heavy favourites Now the top eight is sorted, attention turns to who's going to win the NRL competition — and three teams are a cut above the rest, writes Luke Lewis.Looking at the eight, there are probably three or maybe four teams that can really stake their claims for winning the competition, with another two an outside chance.

NRL Finals teams : Storm boosted by return of Cameron Munster. One of the biggest club’s in the NRL will welcome back a star of the game to the line- up as A spot in the NRL decider is on the line this weekend when the final four teams battle it out. The Storm and Raiders will kick things off in a Friday

The Panthers will have learned lessons after squandering a 10-0 lead against the undefeated Eels, while Melbourne look dangerous having adjusted to the new six-again rule. The Storm have been a bogey team for Penrith, beating them in 18 of their past 20 meetings dating back to 2006.

The Storm have given Cameron Munster, Josh Addo-Carr, Jahrome Hughes, Suliasi Vunivalu, Justin Olam and Brenko Lee the week off, the Raiders have afforded the same courtesy to Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad, Jack Wighton, George Williams, Jarrod Croker and Jordan Rapana, while the Panthers will rest Dylan Edwards, Villame Kikau and Stephen Crichton.

Final chance for Broncos to avoid wooden spoon in Queensland derby mockbuster

  Final chance for Broncos to avoid wooden spoon in Queensland derby mockbuster The last time the Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys played this late into a calendar year they were preparing for the first-ever all-Queensland NRL grand final. That came in 2015 when, two and a half months after Queensland thrashed New South Wales by a record 52-6 in the third State of Origin game at Suncorp Stadium, the two clubs hammered the final nails into the Blues coffin by setting up the decider on neutral territory. History will tell us that the Cowboys would win their first-ever premiership after Johnathan Thurston booted the title-winning field goal three and a half minutes into extra time.

Cooked Chooks make NRL semis a five-team fight

  Cooked Chooks make NRL semis a five-team fight For ten glorious minutes on Friday night I got to experience the joy of supporting the Roosters. In the opening exchanges against South Sydney the Chooks looked big, fast and slick. Josh Morris crashed over in just the third minute and I thought the match was going to be a consolation victory for Knights supporters. I honestly couldn’t remember the last time I had wanted Easts to win, but after Newcastle botched their own opportunity to host a semi-final when they were thrashed by the Titans, the chances of a finals game being played in the Hunter were still alive.
