Tuesday's Expert - NRL 2013 Round 10

We look back at the 10th 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 ten rounds, as the Rabbitohs consolidate top spot.

Plenty of big scores across the weekend, with the average winning margin across the eight games at 24.5 points. The Rabbitohs (54 points) and Panthers (62 points) racked up the biggest wins, while at the other end of the scale the Cowboys and Roosters only had four points separating them in a low-scoring contest, and the Storm and Sea Eagles Monday night classic produced the first draw of the 2013 NRL season.

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 the weekend's games.
