NRL Round 17

Round 17 of the NRL is done and dusted and we have all the best tweets available from a record-breaking weekend of Rugby League.

 

FRIDAY NIGHT

Penrith Panthers 24 def. Gold Coast Titans 2

The less said about this game the better.

Newcastle Knights 14 def by. Canterbury Bulldogs 20

There was an upset at McDonald Jones Stadium as the Dogs beat the Knights.

It was tough times for Newcastle fans.

SATURDAY

South Sydney Rabbitohs 21 def. Manly Sea Eagles 20

An Adam Reynolds field goal sealed a much needed win for South Sydney on Saturday afternoon at ANZ Stadium.

This was a cracking try.

Brisbane Broncos 18 drew with New Zealand Warriors 18

After 80 and time on, the Broncos and Warriors could not be separated on the scoreboard and shared the points at Suncorp Stadium.

Clock controversy in extra time!

This bloke with a hot take on the result.

As always, the Golden Point rule was brought into question.

Melbourne Storm 40 def. Cronulla Sharks 16

It went under the radar a bit and was barely mentioned but Cameron Smith played his 400th game on Saturday night.

He modestly accepted the quiet applause that could be heard pre-game if you were listening closely.

SUNDAY

Sydney Roosters 12 def by. North Queensland Cowboys 15

Another massive upset as the Cowboys traveled south to knock off one of the premiership favourites in the Roosters.

Seems no one can kick a drop goal anymore.

West Tigers 18 def by. Parramatta Eels 30

There were plenty of controversial calls in the battle of Western Sydney on Sunday arvo.

St-George Illawarra Dragons 14 def by. Canberra Raiders 36

The Raiders notched up a very important win away from home against the Dragons to close out the round.
