Tuesday's Expert - NRL 2013 Round 11

We look back at the 11th 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 eleven rounds.

With many players making a final effort at picking up a State of Origin jersey over the weekend, there were a few surprising results. Teams copping heavy losses last week near the bottom of the ladder found themselves courageous winners last week, with the Bulldogs, Tigers and Warriors all beating more fancied opponents. The Melbourne Storm finally got back into the winners circle after three winless weeks had seen them hand the premiership lead to the Rabbitohs. The Bunnies still hold on to first spot despite losing to Cronulla - their nearest challengers in the Roosters falling a spot down the ladder after their loss to the Storm.

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.
