Play-offs

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 Leaders' Shield).

Format

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):

6 Wolvescolours.svg Warrington Wolves 2714013690713-2328

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.
