No team has ever won the premiership after conceding 50pts in a regular season match

cows copped it in 2005 (from memory 7 teams who made the finals that year did). Worst we copped was 44, along with a game against the Donkeys where they ran up 40 by the hour mark and put the cue in the rack.

Yeah that first half of the 2000's was weird and it's a minor miracle this stat survived that era.

Newcastle in 2001 conceded 40 five times. In 2002 goal kicking was the only thing that stopped us conceding 50

We also copped 60 and got to the GF in 2010 which is the other way to measure it.

Souths copped 50 twice in 2021
Souths were a sideline conversion and a field goal away from killing the curse. Insane how close teams have gotten at times.

Cowboys in 2005 conceded 50 twice that year as well and made the GF.

Not sure if anyone else had other then Cowboys 2005, Roosters 2010 & Souths 2021 has made the GF after conceding 50.

Ironically history shows you are more chance of making the GF and losing after conceding 50 points twice in a season then just once.
