Tuesday's Expert - NRL 2013 Round 12

We look back at the 12th 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 twelve rounds.

Just four games took place in this pre-Origin round of the NRL, with eight clubs enjoying the benefits of the bye. The Bulldogs opened the weekend with a slender victory over St. George Illawarra, then on Saturday the Rabbitohs held off the Newcastle Knights after initially conceding a 12-0 lead. After two games at ANZ Stadium, the remainder of the round headed for Queensland, with the Titans thumping the Cowboys at Skilled Park before the Warriors closed the round on Monday night with a thrashing of the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium.

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.
