With just eight minutes gone, the usually dangerous ‘T-Rex’ was more passive Diplodocus, inexplicably dropping the ball from a scrum just 25 metres out. Titans winger Kevin Gordon turned defence into attack, toeing ahead and chasing. As if on a string, the ball propped perfectly for the flier who regathered, pinned his ears back and raced 65 metres for a try and a 6-nil lead.<br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=850&amp;fixtureid=50020101401&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=handlingerror&amp;period=1&amp;time=584" target="_blank">CLICK HERE to re-live this play now on Game Analyser.</a><br><br><b>2.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Cowboys 16 def Raiders 8 at Dairy Farmers Stadium</b><br>The moment: Clinging to a six-point advantage, the Cowboys earned breathing space with a controversial penalty goal in the 70th minute after strike weapon Matt Bowen was “felled” by Raiders interchange Adam Mogg. While there’s no doubt Mogg hung his arm out in a wrapping tackle action, Bowen clearly stumbled and was falling to the turf when the barest of cuff-like contact occurred. Worse than just a penalty, referee Matt Cecchin placed the Raider on report. Did it ultimately cost the Raiders the game? Thankfully, no. But did the NRL match review committee deem Mogg had a case to answer? Nope…<br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=850&amp;fixtureid=50020101402&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=penaltyconceded&amp;period=2&amp;time=1942" target="_blank">CLICK HERE to re-live this play now on Game Analyser.</a><br><br><b>3.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Warriors 32 def Knights 24 at EnergyAustralia Stadium</b><br>The moment: Fijian powder keg Akuila Uate rocketed to co-leader in the NRL try-scoring stakes (14) with a juggernaut-like 45-metre sprint down the left edge that literally left Warriors&nbsp; fullback Lance Hohaia clutching at thin air. Knights five-eighth Jarrod Mullen started the movement deep in his own half, spreading it wide for centre Junior Sa’u who offloaded for Uate who unleashed his damaging burst. The lesson learned: you cannot let Uate get the ball when he has a full head of steam up… or else. (Shame the Knights wilted late to make his effort worthless.)<br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=850&amp;fixtureid=50020101403&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=linebreak&amp;period=2&amp;time=990" target="_blank">CLICK HERE to re-live this play now on Game Analyser.</a><br><br><b>4.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Broncos 50 def Rabbitohs 22 at Suncorp Stadium</b><br>The moment: The home side had four multiple try-scorers in registering a half century of points. Just a day after his predecessor made an inauspicious Aussie rules debut, Broncos fullback Josh Hoffman scored a double and had the fans asking “Karmichael who?”; centre Matt Gillett bagged a double filling in for Origin rep Israel Folau; winger Jharal Yow Yeh scored twice; and back-rower Ben T’eo snared a hat-trick. But it was left to Yow Yeh to provide the crowning razzle-dazzle moment – with the Broncos up 44-22, Peter Wallace launched a raid down the short blind, with Corey Parker delivering a wonderful ball that got Yow Yeh on the outside of South Sydney winger Fetuli Talanoa on the Broncos’ 30-metre line. Yow Yeh raced 40 metres and with Rhys Wesser converging in cover, chipped ahead, regathered 10 metres out and grounded untouched. Sublime individual play. Parker nailed the conversion for the magic 50.<br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=850&amp;fixtureid=50020101404&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=linebreak&amp;period=2&amp;time=2452" target="_blank">CLICK HERE to re-live this play now on Game Analyser.</a><br><br><b>5.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Roosters 38 def Storm 6 at AAMI Park</b><br>The moment: It’s not often a player wearing no.19 even takes the field in an NRL game, let alone commands attention, but that’s what young Kane Linnett did for Brian Smith’s side. A late inclusion in the centres, Linnett scored a try on debut, sending the visitors to an 18-nil lead after 35 minutes. But it was his involvement in the Roosters’ second try in the 25th minute that hinted he may belong in the big time. In an 80-metre movement, lock Frank-Paul Nuuausala hit the defensive line and offloaded, with the ball passing like a hot potato through four sets of hands to put Linnett into space. The youngster played a calm hand as he approached the opposition fullback, looking to an inside support before shifting it wide to unmarked winger Phil Graham who crossed for the try of the match.<br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=850&amp;fixtureid=50020101405&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=linebreak&amp;period=1&amp;time=1500" target="_blank">CLICK HERE to re-live this play now on Game Analyser.</a><br><br>* The views in this article are the authors’ and not necessarily those of the clubs or the NRL.<br>
