Only once has a team who finished in the bottom half of the table in one season gone on to win the Grand Final the next.
That was Leeds Rhinos in 2017 who followed up their ninth place finish in 2016 with Grand Final glory.
Meanwhile, Salford Red Devils reached the 2019 decider after finishing in the bottom half in 2018 meanwhile 2018 Grand Finalists Warrington Wolves finished in the bottom four in 2017.
But which teams from the bottom half of 2022’s Super League table could win the 2023 Grand Final.
The Wolves know the route to the Grand Final perfectly and have made some huge signings going into 2023. This is designed to give the Wolves the perfect edge in the modern game as Daryl Powell revamps his pack.
Tony Smith knows the way to the Grand Final guiding Leeds Rhinos and Warrington to Old Trafford and Hull KR to within touching distance. Now he’s at Hull FC especially with an exciting new spine with Jake Clifford, Tex Hoy and Castleford Tigers’ Jake Trueman at the club.
Hull KR were not long since in the last four of the Super League. Many of the players who led them that far are still at the club and the young players who were involved has developed further such as Mikey Lewis. Thus, they could very well be in a stronger position going into 2023 despite their difficulties.
