Tuesday's Expert - NRL 2013 Round 13

We look back at the 13th round of the 2013 NRL Premiership, and see how the Player of the Year standings are tracking. Also features a look at the ladder at the halfway mark of the season.

Manly's form took a worrying turn with a loss to the Warriors, meaning the Titans are right on their heels. Canterbury jumped into the eight with a victory over the Cowboys, who now sit at the bottom of the ladder with the Eels, who were valiant but still couldn't get past the Roosters. The Storm flexed their premiership muscle with a convincing win over the Sharks, while a bye saw the Rabbitohs maintain top spot.

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, plus a look back at Origin game one.
