ST.GEORGE-ILLAWARRA = brilliant comeback against their arch rivals.
SYDNEY ROOSTERS = brilliant reversal after the upset loss to Wests.
BRISBANE = Broncos win another Queensland classic.
NZ WARRIORS = two straight wins. Could the Warriors finally be good again?
PENRITH = another big comeback but would probably want stronger starts in the future.
WESTS TIGERS = amazingly, Wests beat last year’s top two teams.
MANLY = what a flogging at Brookvale.
NEWCASTLE = the Knights look set for a huge year.
CRONULLA = blew a 14-0 lead at home.
CANTERBURY = now 0-2 with a tricky game against Penrith next Friday.
NORTH QUEENSLAND = the upright post only thing between the Cowboys and victory.
GOLD COAST = no big comeback this week.
SOUTHS = two straight losses points to another rough season.
MELBOURNE = a small hiccup or sign of mortality? Wait and see.
PARRAMATTA = first they surrender a big lead against Penrith, now they’re flogged by Manly.
CANBERRA = another close loss. Starting to get ridiculous.
