Play-offs[edit]

Like all Super League seasons since 1998, the 2006 championship was decided via a play-off series. Teams were introduced according to the play-off's format and their relative places in the league table at the end of all 28 regular rounds. The play-offs had no bearing on the minor premiership (otherwise known as the League Leader's Shield).

Format[edit]

Super League XI followed the top-six play-off system, for its fifth consecutive year. Places were granted to the top six teams in the Super League XI table. Following the final round of matches on the weekend of 15–17 September, all six play-off teams were set (in order of finishing place):

  Team Pld W D L PF PA PD Pts
1 Saintscolours.svg St Helens 28 24 0 4 939 430 +509 48
2 Hullcolours.svg Hull 28 20 0 8 720 578 +142 40
3 Rhinoscolours.svg Leeds 28 19 0 9 869 543 +326 38
4 Bullscolours.svg Bradford 28 16 2 10 802 568 +234 32a[›]
5 Redscolours.svg Salford 28 15 0 13 600 539 +61 26
6 Wolvescolours.svg Warrington 28 15 0 13 743 721 +22 26
Notes

^ a: Bradford deducted 2 points for salary cap breaches[1]

Home field advantage was given by position in the league table at the end of regular rounds, with the lower team playing on the team's ground. The only exception to this rule was the grand final, which was played at Old Trafford following tradition. The format followed the double elimination rule for the first and second placed teams, meaning whichever of the teams lost their qualifying play-off match would have to lose again in order to be knocked-out of the play-offs entirely.
