Play-offs[edit]

The 2008 Super League championship was decided through a play-off system, in which the participants were included according to their league position at the end of 27 regular rounds. The play-off system had no bearing on the minor premiership (otherwise known as the League Leader's Shield).

Format[edit]

Super League XIII followed the top-six play-off system. It was the seventh year in a row the format had been applied, as well as being the final year before the play-offs were expanded in the 2009 season. Places were granted to the top six teams in the Super League XIII table. Following the final round of matches on the weekend of 5–7 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 RLFC 27 21 1 5 940 457 +483 43
2 Rhinoscolours.svg Leeds Rhinos 27 21 0 6 863 413 +450 42
3 Catalanscolours.svg Catalans Dragons 27 16 2 9 694 625 +69 34
4 Wigancolours.svg Wigan Warriors 27 13 3 11 648 698 -50 29
5 Bullscolours.svg Bradford Bulls 27 14 0 13 705 625 +80 28
6 Wolvescolours.svg Warrington Wolves 27 14 0 13 690 713 -23 28

Home field advantage was given by league position at the end of regular rounds, with the lower of the two teams playing at the higher team's ground. The only exception to this was the Grand Final, which was played at Old Trafford following tradition. The top-six system followed double elimination rules for the first and second placed team, meaning whichever of the teams lost in the qualifying semi-final had to lose again before being knocked-out of the play-offs entirely.
