Titans prop Luke Douglas scored a try against the Knights in Round 24.

The Panthers put a dent in the Wests Tigers' finals hopes by smashing the James Tedesco-less side by 30 points. Jarryd Hayne was knocked out in the Titans' win over the Knights but Ryan James starred with two tries. Raiders skipper Jarrod Croker single-handily orchestrated a comeback win over the Eels, setting up the majority of Brenko Lee's four tries. The Roosters put the final nail in the Dragons' finals hopes while the Rabbitohs extended the Sharks' pre-finals jitters.
