NRL line-ups revealed for Round 20

All 16 NRL clubs have confirmed their for this weekend’s Round 20 fixtures.

With the top eight confirmed, home and away advantage in the finals is the main thing at stake this week, with several clubs vying to improve their chances with one game to go.

The Panthers were confirmed as minor premiers last week for the first time in 17 years, while the Storm cemented their place in second.

The Raiders are still a chance of creeping into the top four should they beat Cronulla and the Eels fail to win against the Tigers, although the third-place Roosters could also still drop into fourth if results don’t go their way.

This weekend’s opening fixture could decide who takes the wooden spoon in 2020, as bottom-placed Brisbane take on 14th-placed North Queensland at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday at 10:50am (UK time).

A Broncos loss would all but confirm their finish at the foot of the ladder, however should they pull off a win, the pressure would be on the Bulldogs to beat the Panthers instead.
