Tuesday's Expert - NRL 2013 Round 14

We look back at the 14th 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 Rabbitohs and Storm look to have broken away at the top, maintaining their good form while the immediate chasers - the Sydney Roosters and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles both stumbling with surprise losses at the weekend. Canterbury, Cronulla and the Raiders have all put a four-point gap between themselves and the sides just outside the eight. The Knights, Panthers, Broncos and Warriors now face an uphill battle to dethrone those teams in the race to the finals. The Eels remain alone on the bottom of the ladder, unable to overcome the Sharks in the Shire on Saturday night. The round opened with a controversial golden point thriller at Brookvale where Canterbury held out a fast-finishing Manly, while the round closed on Monday with Brisbane bouncing back to form.

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 14.
