NORTH QUEENSLAND = desperately-needed win.
PARRAMATTA = finally won.
CRONULLA = their third win of the season was hard-fought.
CANTERBURY = they followed the wonderful Townsville win with that performance against the Roosters?
ST. GEORGE-ILLAWARRA = the winning run had to end sometime.
BRISBANE = crashed to earth after the big win in Auckland.
CANBERRA = disappointing loss to a far superior Souths after two good wins.
WESTS TIGERS = still have a brilliant 5-2 record.
GOLD COAST = two straight losses.
MANLY = three straight losses since the big Canberra win.
PENRITH = hopefully a minor hiccup in an otherwise great start to the season.
