Tuesday's Expert - NRL 2013 Round 15

We look back at the 15th 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 first-vs-last battle at ANZ on Sunday went to script, with an understrength South Sydney showing why they're leading the competition with a 30-10 win over potential spooners Parramatta. The Roosters surprised a much-favoured Bulldogs outfit on Friday night despite missing their halves and several other key players, while the Titans overcame a depleted Melbourne and the Tigers continued Canberra's poor away form with a win in Campbelltown.

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 15.
