You may have read that all seven teams in the Sal's NBL Showdown will make it through to Finals Week (July 28 - August 1), which is correct. However, do you know the path that each team will need to take based on where they finish on the ladder after the regular season?
Every team starts with a chance at claiming the title, but the higher you finish on the ladder, the easier the run.
Though teams are still fighting it out for their final ladder position, one thing we already know is that the Mike Pero Nelson Giants and Wheeler Motor Company Canterbury Rams will have the toughest road with their 6th and 7th finishing positions confirmed.
To win the title the Giants and Rams will need to win four games in Week 6!
