The Rabbitohs temporally allayed fears of their quickly dwindling season when they handed the Cowboys a flogging in Townsville. The next night saw the Broncos return to form and hand the Dragons a similar card. The Knights won against fellow competition strugglers Wests Tigers – with interim coach Danny Buderus recording his first victory in the NRL. The Roosters survived an Eels scare while the Panthers defeated a hapless Warriors outfit. Meanwhile controversy saw the Sea Eagles edge out the Raiders while the Storm ensured that it wouldn't be all sunshine and lollipops for Sharks fans as the battle for the top four heated up.
