Tuesday's Expert - NRL 2013 Round 18

We look back at the 18th 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 shortened round ahead of Origin III provided an obvious upset with the Bulldogs trouncing a well-undermanned Melbourne Storm side, with Cronulla, Manly and Penrith all consolidating their top eight positions. Next week there is one round left of bye-interrupted NRL before we resume 8-match rounds from Week 20 onwards.

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 18.
