NRL Ladder 2018

The 2018 NRL Ladder displays the sixteen professional Rugby League teams in the annual Telstra Premiership in ranking order from 1 – 16 based on competition points. NRL teams receive two competition points per win and also two points in the week they don’t play because of a scheduled bye.

NRL Ladder Betting

The NRL Ladder shows the current position of the clubs in the Telstra Premiership.

When clubs have equal competition points their ladder position is decided by match points differential (for and against) and points percentage. The ladder, sometimes referred to as the table, decides the Top 8 and Top 4 teams that move onto the NRL finals after the opening 25 rounds of the regular season. The NRL Regular Season was cut from 26 weeks to 25 weeks for the first time in 2018.

Rugby League betting is open on where clubs will finish on the NRL ladder including markets on teams to ‘Make the Top 4’ or ‘Miss the Top 8’. The team that finishes first on the ladder win the Minor Premiership, odds for which are also offered at the start of the season.

The Sydney Roosters finished top of the NRL Ladder three years in a row from 2013 – 15, achieving the record for most number of NRL minor premierships (4).

Where teams sit on the NRL ladder also affects the round-by-round Rugby League betting odds on the competition as well as futures betting on the NRL Grand Final. Overall NRL Premiership markets are dominated throughout the season by teams higher up the ladder rankings.
