NRL Round-21 Recap
The NRL regular season is coming to an end, as the teams participated in their sixth-to-last game of the season. The battle for play-off spots is heating up as every game is more important than the last.
Bulldogs 32 Rabbitohs 12
The Bulldogs did not waste any time getting it going at home on Friday. Bryson Goodwin opened the scoring with a try in the third minute and they did not stop for the rest of the day. Goodwin hit all five of his conversions and a penalty as the Bulldogs got tries from five different players to upset the Rabbitohs in one of this weekend's Sydney derbies.
Panthers 24 Cowboys 16
The Panthers are clawing at first place, and were not willing to give away an easy one at home in Penrith.
Will Tupou opened the scoring for the Cowboys, but the Panthers would do the rest of the work from then on, as Michael Gordon notched the first try of the side in the 11th minute. Gordon would go on to hit four conversions, a penalty and score the final try of the day in the 75th minute, putting the game out of reach.
Roosters 48 Eels 12
The Eels were trying to keep up their winning streak but ran into a tough opponent at home in Parramatta on Saturday.
The Rooster were simply the better team taking a 24-12 lead into half time, and expanding on it scoring an amazing eight tries on the day.
Todd Carney provided all eight with conversion to make it impossible for the Eels, in another Sydney derby.
Wests Tigers 24 Sharks 22
In one of the most exciting games of the week the Wests Tigers were pushed to the limit against the Sharks.
The Sharks opened the scoring with a try from Dean Collis, but could not hold the lead as they headed into the break down 14-10.
The Tigers Managed to extend their lead in the 65th minute with a try from Lote Tuqiri. However the Sharks looked as though they were ready to get back in it with a try in the 70th minute from Nathan Gardner. Nevertheless, it was too little too late, as the Sharks were bested by the fourth-place Tigers.
Titans 28 Warriors 20
The Titans kept up their strong run by defeating a tough Warriors team in New Zealand on Sunday.
Steve Michaels notched the first two tries for the Titans, but the two sides went into the half tied at 12.
The Titans came back from the break with three tries, and Scott Prince hitting all of his conversions to make the difference on the day.
Storm 36 Raiders 12
The Storm welcomed the Raiders to Melbourne’s AAMI Park over the weekend to get their second win in a row.
The Raiders looked disjointed in what should have been an easy affair, while the Storm looked in form for the second week straight with Justin O’Neill tallying two first half tries, and Cameron Smith going four-for-four on conversion.
Broncos 10 Dragons 6
In the upset of the week the Broncos were able to defeat the Dragons at home in Brisbane.
The low scoring affair was dominated by defence. The Broncos Israel Folau proved to be the difference maker notching two tries, the first coming in the 30th minute to give the squad a 4-0 lead at half. The second came in the 71st minute to extend the lead. A Brett Morris Try would be too late for the Dragons, as they were handed a road loss.
Knights 32 Sea Eagles 14
In the Monday night affair the Knights completed an upset, as the 11th place squad defeated the sixth place Sea Eagles.
The Knights did their work in the first half with three tries from Akuila Uate, taking a 24-4 lead into the break.
