2015 Season Review: Round 26

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

Round 26 Results:

Storm 15 defeated Broncos 8 
Roosters 30 defeated Rabbitohs 0 
Panthers 30 defeated Knights 12 
Dragons 32 defeated Wests Tigers 30 in golden point extra time 
Cowboys 42 defeated Titans 12 
Raiders 28 defeated Eels 24 in golden point extra time 
Sea Eagles 14 defeated Sharks 12 
Bulldogs 26 defeated Warriors 22 

The Sharks blew their opportunity to finish the regular season in the top four when the Sea Eagles were able to hold out five failed try-scoring attempts to finish their season and cap off Geoff Toovey's time as head coach of the club. The Panthers were able to avoid the wooden spoon by smashing the Knights in captain Kurt Gidley's final game. The Roosters sent South Sydney into the finals limping off the back of a 30-0 smashing, while two golden point games ensured 2015 would end with a bang for the Raiders and the Dragons. The same could not be said for the Titans who were flogged in Townsville.
