2015 Season Review: Round 16

NRL.com takes a look back at the season that was, including our most-viewed content on a week-to-week basis.

Round 16 Results:

Rabbitohs 20 defeated Sea Eagles 8 
Broncos 44 defeated Knights 22 
Warriors 30 defeated Raiders 8 
Sharks 24 defeated Cowboys 18 
Eels 16 defeated Dragons 12 
Roosters 20 defeated Titans 10 
Panthers 35 defeated Wests Tigers 12 
Bulldogs 20 defeated Storm 4 

It took until the end of the weekend but it was the Bulldogs who well and truly stole the show in Round 16 with their first game back at Belmore Sportsground in 17 years. The Bulldogs sprinting out the blocks and the Storm had no answers to Des Hasler's inspired men. An unsung Panther grabbed a few headlines of his own as veteran winger David Simmons racked up his 100th NRL try in a four-try haul against the Wests Tigers. The Sharks ended the Cowboys' 11-game winning streak though they did it without having to come up against Johnathan Thurston. Meanwhile a brave 15-man Knights outfit did their best to hold out the Broncos, but ran out of puff when it mattered.
