NRL Round 20 Review

Round 20 of the NRL started with a barnstorming game featuring two of the game heavyweights, in the Melbourne Storm and the Brisbane Broncos. The Broncos hung in, while the relentless nature of the Storm always gave them the indication that they would crack. The Broncos hung in at 6all for much of the game, but when they cracked the floodgate opened to some degree. The Storm won 26-6, but the Broncos didn't lose too many admirers. The other Friday Night game was heartbreak again for the Eels with the Bulldogs winning a thriller 8-7.

Saturday night saw the Cowboys win again without their captain Jonathon Thurston, although his presence was felt with a blistering half-time rev-up by the injured captain. The Cowboys disposed of the Titans 28-20. The Tigers played the Roosters on Saturday night as well, and many thought the Roosters were ripped off....but the scoreboard ended up saying 19-12 to the Tigers. The Sharks bubble has burst with the Knights touching them up 18-0.

Sunday saw an amazing performance by the New Zealand Warriors. They defeated the Rabbitohs 48-16, after a first half performance that some say was the best of any team for the season. Manly and Penrith played the other game on Sunday, and in a see-sawing game which was their for both sides to win, the Sea Eagles took the honours 12-8.
