The South Sydney Rabbitohs put on a dominant performance at Bankwest Stadium to defeat the Eels 38 – 0.

St George-Illawarra Dragons v Gold Coast Titans
Friday 28 August 2020

Gold Coast captain Jamal Fogarty answered the bell with a match-winning try, as the Titans stormed home to beat St George Illawarra 14-10 at Kogarah on Friday night.

Sydney Roosters v Brisbane Broncos
Friday 28 August 2020

The Sydney Cricket Ground has seen countless half-centuries over the years but the one posted by the Roosters against the Broncos on Friday night may well rank among the most effortless.

The premiers sauntered to a 58-12 victory, backing up the 59-0 defeat they dished out in round four that sparked Brisbane’s stunning downward spiral.

Warriors v Newcastle Knights
Saturday 29 August 2020

The Warriors continued their solid march towards the top eight thanks largely to the devastating Peta Hiku-Adam Pompey right-side partnership in a commanding 36-6 win over the Knights at Tamworth’s Scully Park.

Cronulla Sharks v North Queensland Cowboys
Saturday 29 August 2020

A rookie halfback who moved away from home at 12 years of age to pursue his NRL dream has given Cronulla coach John Morris a selection headache after leading the Sharks to a 28-12 defeat of North Queensland at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.

Penrith Panthers v Wests Tigers
Saturday 29 August 2020

Panthers coach Ivan Cleary expected Wests Tigers to employ niggling tactics in his side’s 30-6 win and reckons others may follow suit in a bid to disrupt them.

The ladder leaders rolled on to a club-record 11th consecutive victory at home despite the Tigers being revved up on Saturday night.

Melbourne Storm v Manly Sea Eagles
Sunday 30 August 2020

Two second-half Jack Wighton stunners have set the Raiders up for a grand final rematch with the Roosters where they can steal an all-important top four spot, but only after the mother of all scares from cellar dwellers Canterbury.

Canberra Raiders v Canterbury Bulldogs
Sunday 30 August 2020

Two second-half Jack Wighton stunners have set the Raiders up for a grand final rematch with the Roosters where they can steal an all-important top four spot, but only after the mother of all scares from cellar dwellers Canterbury.
