Tuesday's Expert Wrap - NRL Round 19

We've arrived at the end of Round 19 of the 2014 National Rugby League Telstra Premiership! Check out all the results, reports and player of the year points right here.

The first full round of NRL after the end of the Origin period was dedicated to the Rise for Alex Foundation and Knights' player Alex McKinnon following his horrific injury in Round 3 of this season - all clubs did their part to celebrate Alex's strength and fighting spirit, while various fundraising measures raised well in excess of $1 million for the foundation. On the field, the Cowboys won away from home for the first time this season, Souths returned to form, the Roosters halted Penrith's run of good form and the Storm dominated the Raiders. There were also wins for the Broncos, Titans and Tigers with Manly wrapping up the round with a clinical defeat of the Dragons on Monday night.
