But this all depends on favourable results.
The Hunters are still in second place on 39 points. Newcomers, Townsville Blackhawks who are also on 39 points, continue to hold first spot on the ladder.
The two teams are only separated by points for and against with the Blackhawks on 476 compared to the Hunters on 211.
The Hunters will play the 8th placed Mackay Cutters this weekend and then the 9th placed Burleigh Bears the weekend after which is the last game before the finals.
But the Blackhawks also have relatively easy games lined up for them as they take on the Sunshine Coast Falcons this weekend who are 11th on the ladder and then the 7th placed Redcliffe Dolphins the week after.
Teams in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth positions are too far behind to have a chance of becoming minor premiers and will battle it out in these last two weekends to secure their spots in the top 6 for the finals.
