The Wests Tigers overcame a slippery park and 60 minutes of grind, to finally put the Knights to the sword today at EnergyAustralia Stadium. The Knights fielding a tonne on rookies, did a fair job of making a contest of it and were right in the match until late. The Tigers were helped by a good Robbie Farrah showing, the hooker was dangerous all day and constructed play well with new boy Chris Lawrence still finding his feet at pivot.

It was the Green Machine in the first twenty minutes at Bruce Stadium on Saturday night, as the Raiders ran in 4 tries inside 11 minutes to crush the high flying Eels. A near perfect display of handling, play execution and some good bounces allowed the Raiders to put the game beyond doubt very early on. The game got spiteful as the teams knew it was over, and plenty of sin binning was to follow. Weymann lucky to not be sent, after smashing Cordoba high and then getting his freak on with fellow fat man Mark Piggy Riddell.
