Tuesday's Expert Wrap - NRL Round 11

We've arrived at the end of the Round 11 of the 2014 National Rugby League Telstra Premiership! Check out all the results, reports and player of the year points right here.

The first of the season's bye-shortened rounds kicked off with an under-strength Bulldogs copping a hiding from the less-Origin-hit Roosters at ANZ Stadium, while the first Saturday games saw the Warriors dominate both in the stands and on the fields at Robina where the Myles & Bird-less Titans were no match despite a gallant effort. Smaller Super Saturday concluded with the Wests Tigers going down to Brisbane in a relatively tepid encounter at Campbelltown.

Canberra turned on the spark after a string of poor performances to down a Thurston & Scott-less Cowboys outfit by thirty points on Sunday, while the Rabbitohs executed their first to-nil shut out of a side since the nineties when they downed Cronulla on Monday night.

Eight teams had byes across Round 11 - here's how the weekend panned out over the five games played...
