NRL Results Round 17

The Round 17 of the NRL has showcased some great and gutsy efforts by teams under seige. Friday Night saw the understrength Broncos take on an Eels outfit needing to win to stay in touch with the Top 8. The Broncos stormed out to a 12-0 lead, which the Eels pegged back in a massive second half effort. Just when the Game appeared to be heading into Golden Point, Matt Gillet stepped inside his defensive man to run 30 metres to win the game. Nathan Hindmarsh showed his displeasure at game end, and realised that for 2011, the Eels are gone.

The Saturday game saw a hyped up Panthers outfit dispose of the Bulldogs 20-6. The playing group of the Panthers have rallied and in their current form, may just be a dark horse in the competition race. Sunday saw another win by the Cronulla Sharks who just crushed the Rabbitohs 26-4. The third win in a row by the Sharkies, and this win came without their inspirational captain Paul Gallon, which makes the win all the more meritorious. In the Final Sunday game, the Dragons, missing their six Origin stars, just ran out of gas as an energetic Knights outfit got home, 14-10.
