Warriors captain Ryan Hoffman during his team's heavy loss to Melbourne on Anzac Day.

2016 Season Review: Round 8

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

Penrith rookie James Fisher-Harris stamped his authority on the NRL with a commanding two-try effort, but it wasn't enough to combat the Sharks. The Storm ran riot against the hapless Warriors on Anzac Day while just hours prior Roosters coach Trent Robinson had nothing but complaints towards the match officials following his side's loss to the Dragons.  A Josh Reynolds field goal separated the Bulldogs and Gold Coast in golden point while the Broncos toughed out their fifth-straight win over South Sydney. Corey Norman's sin-binning in the Eels' loss to the Cowboys proved the difference in Townsville.
