NRL Review Round 19

Round 19 of the NRL finished this evening with a comprehensive victory from the Dragons over the Sharks. This game was eagerly anticipated as the local derby and the Sharks winning form leading into it, gave the Sharks fans something to dream of. The Dragons were systematic in the first half and led 24-0 at half-time. The Dragons ultimately won 38-8, and the Dragons have again moved into close  favouritism to back up and win their back-to-back premierships.

The round started with two Friday Night games with the Warriors flogging the Bulldogs 36-12 and the Broncos knocking over their South-East Qld rivals, the Gold Coast Titans 30-10. Saturday Night saw two absolute rippers with the Souths Rabbitohs defeat Foundation Rivals the Sydney Roosters 21-20, and the Panthers nailed the Eels 23-22. The other game certainly wasn't close with the Tigers flogging the Cowboys 38-18.

Sunday was the Manly Sea Eagles and the Melbourne Storm time to put a stamp on the comp with the Storm beating the Raiders 26-0 while Manly defeated Newcastle 32-10.

The finals look centred, with Manly, Storm, Brisbane and the Dragons likely to finish within the Top 4, with the Cowboys in fifth having a four point buffer to the sixth placed team. The fight is on for places, 6, 7 and 8.
