NRL Round 18: The Winners and Losers

WINNERS
Sydney Roosters = important win – minus Origin stars – over Souths.
Penrith = Controversial win over Manly.
Parramatta = lead 16-0 after 23 minutes. That was enough.
Canterbury = somehow found a way to beat the tragically luckless Knights.

LOSERS 
Souths = couldn’t bridge an eight-point halftime deficit.
Manly = five-game winning streak over.
Melbourne = weakened team had to wear a loss, will have their full complement back after the bye.
Newcastle = another late capitulation, leading by 10 with five minutes left. Just give Newcastle the wooden spoon now.
