SAINTS will pass the 15-game threshold on Friday – something all teams must pass to have a chance of qualifying for the Super League top-four play-off.

Percentages were brought in due to the doubt over whether a full fixture list could be completed before the end of the regular season.

The RFL decided places will be determined by percentage wins rather than the number of points gained but teams need to play a minimum of 15 matches to qualify for the semi-finals.

Warrington reached the target last Tuesday and leaders Saints and second-placed Wigan can do likewise on Friday when they play Leeds and Salford respectively.

Leeds, currently in fifth place, are still two games away from qualification and fourth-placed Catalans Dragons have three fixtures to squeeze in before they can breathe a little easier.

Teams still have to finish in the top four to secure play-off spots.

If teams have the same win percentage, positions will decided by points percentage.

The Points Scored Percentage is calculated by dividing the number of points scored by a club by the number of points it concedes and multiplying by 100. 

If the positions are still equal, which seems highly unlikely, positions will be determined by the toss of a coin which shall be carried out at such time and place as the RFL shall direct and those clubs concerned shall be entitled to witness the toss. 

Saints will be keen to take all of that out of the equation - and their desitiny to finish top for the third consecutive season is still in their own hands.
