Sydney Stars go into the final round of the National Rugby Championship regular season still searching for their first win of the inaugural season of the new Australian domestic tournament.They face the North Harbour Rays at the Leichhardt Oval on Thursday in their last match of the season, already condemned to bottom position in the nine team table, whatever the outcome of the fixture.

Although North Harbour come into the opening match of the final week in seventh position, a try-scoring bonus point victory against the Stars would give them a very real chance of sneaking into fourth position, and securing the final qualifying position for the semi-finals. Should they do so, they will face an away match against the unbeaten Melbourne Rising.

If the Rays, who were badly beaten at home last week by Brisbane City 26-77, defeat the Sydney Stars and secure a bonus point, they will need last week's conquerors Brisbane to win at home to Canberra Vikings, and New South Wales County to also win at home to the Perth Spirit.With Brisbane and NSW Country both going neck and neck for second place, and a home semi-final, the chances look good for a home win double, giving the Rays even more incentive to collect just their third win of the competition on Thursday.
