Parramatta were the big winners despite their loss to the Roosters with several players producing big scores, while Adam Reynolds has Brisbane humming along as he continues to fly under the radar.

At the other end of the scale, Tom Trbojevic and the Sea Eagles struggled following their loss to Brisbane while Xavier Coates and the Storm's big names also came crashing down to earth as Penrith took over on top of the ladder.

Round 10 Winners

Parramatta duo Ryan Matterson and Isaiah Papali'i were both huge winners for coaches on the Magic Round weekend, producing the two highest individual scores.

Despite coming off the bench, Matterson topped all players for the round to finish with 84 points while the ever-reliable Papali'i continued his claim as the must-own edge forward this year with another 83-point effort in his side's loss to the Roosters.

Halfback Mitchell Moses was also narrowly behind the pair with 71 points.

Josh Papalii 
was a big winner from the Raiders' shock win over Cronulla, producing a 72-point performance courtesy of his first try of the season.

Newcastle forwards Mitch Barnett (68 points) and David Klemmer (65 points) were base stat machines in the Knights' win over the Bulldogs to kick off Magic Round, while Titans forward Moeaki Fotuaika (66 points) also scored strongly — benefiting from the extra nine minutes of play in a thrilling Golden Point finish.

Izack Tago rewarded owners who held, scoring a double to finish with 67 points. With another round of price rises set to take place, Tago is now worth holding for the Round 13 bye for the 38 percent of coaches who have the Panthers centre.

The magical kicking game of Adam Reynolds

Having now risen by more than $150k, Adam Reynolds is shaping as a serious point-of-difference in the halves with another 70-point score, while former Rabbitohs teammate Damien Cook also scored 70 in South Sydney's victory.

Reece Robson (63 points) continues to benefit from increased minutes at hooker, while Jayden Campbell (62 points) marked his return to the NRL with a fine performance tor help the Titans over the line against the Dragons.

Popular names such as Stephen Crichton (52 points), Nathan Cleary (58 points), Payne Haas (45 points), James Tedesco (48 points), Kelma Tuilagi (49 points) and Jeremiah Nanai (43 points) all performed well as expected.

Round 10 Losers

After producing for coaches in recent weeks, Xavier Coates came crashing down to earth in the Storm's loss to Penrith — producing -1 in an 80-minute performance that will have many coaches looking for the sell button this week. 

Reuben Garrick's unhappy night up against Selwyn Cobbo saw the Sea Eagles winger score just 13 points, while Josh McGuire was sin-binned in his 250th NRL game and finished the round with just 14 points to his name.

Under-the-radar cheapie Sam Lisone managed just 17 points despite the Titans game going to Golden Point, while coaches will have wanted more than 19 points from Leo Thompson after he was named to start at lock.

Jason Taumalolo couldn't get going despite the Cowboys running away big winners, scoring just 20 points — the same score as Brandon Smith.

Popular cheapie Ben Trbojevic scored 21 points before going off with a shoulder injury, while his brother Tom Trbojevic fared only slightly better, scoring 23 points in what was another disappointing performance for owners.

Siosifa Talakai 
scored 23 points as Cronulla went down to Canberra; Harry Grant struggled his way to 32 points as the Storm were well beaten by Penrith; while Kotoni Staggs was also well-held by Manly, finishing with 32 points.

Jacob Host lasted just a few minutes in his return from injury and scored only 2, Matt Moylan struggled in the Sharks' loss to Canberra and scored 6 while the likes of Victor Radley (11), Te Maire Martin (11) and Matt Dufty (12) barely made it out of single digits in a tough round for coaches.
