Tuesday Expert - NRL 2013 Round 22
We look back at the 22nd round of the 2013 NRL Premiership, and see how the Player of the Year standings are tracking. Also features a look at the ladder after the weekend's games.
The Sydney Roosters continued their march up the table in consolidating outright first possession, despite an at-times sketchy performance in their 28-22 win over the Canberra Raiders. The Melbourne Storm showed they're not just top-four fodder with a powerful win against one-time favourites the South Sydney Rabbitohs. The Gold Coast Titans jumped into the top eight with a 26-16 upset win over Canterbury-Bankstown, while the Newcastle Knights kept themselves in the hunt for a home final by pipping the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at the siren to close in on the 6th-placed Shire outfit. At the bottom of the table, the Parramatta Eels drew closer to their nearest rivals the Wests Tigers with a victory over their fellow cellar-dwelling opponents, the Broncos and Cowboys secured important victories while the Dragons and Panthers faced all too familiar stories as losing sides this weekend.
Below you'll find the results, player of the match points and match details for each fixture, plus a look at the NRL ladder after Round 22.
