2016 Season Review: Round 9

Warriors coach Andrew McFadden stood down six first graders to the Intrust Super Premiership – handing the likes of Toafofoa Sipley and Matthew Allwood their first games of the year – and still beat a disappointing Dragons outfit. The Sharks went close to blowing a 28-point advantage to the Broncos but held strong for their sixth-consecutive victory. James Tedesco's shoulder injury didn't worry the Wests Tigers as they produced an upset win over South Sydney. The Panthers pipped the Raiders at the post in Bathurst while the Cowboys were simply too good for the Sea Eagles at Brookvale.
