Honley, meanwhile, are safe because even if they lose their final three games and Shelley win theirs to finish level on 51 points with six wins each, Honley have the better head-to-head record by a point, 8-7.
Shelley, meanwhile, can still save themselves by making up an eight-point gap on Cawthorne.
