Sharks and Dolphins kick off Round 15

Cronulla are hot off their 22-12 win over the Broncos and will be hungry to knock the Storm off the top spot.

Returning to Shark Park for the first time since they were kept scoreless by the Panthers in Round 12, Craig Fitzgibbon's side will be looking to make amends with their loyal home fans, having now won four from five home games this season. 

Flegler’s career in doubt

A star off-season recruit from the Broncos, Flegler suffered the shoulder injury in the Dolphins' Round 5 win over Wests Tigers. 

At the time, the club was hopeful the issue would be minor, but have since found an ongoing nerve problem which is a medical mystery for Dolphins medical staff to solve. 

Fight on to keep Tigers stars

The Tigers boss also sent a warning shot to rival NRL clubs eyeing boom playmaker Lachlan Galvin, as he prepares to sit down with the teenager’s family this week to convince them his future is at the joint venture club.

Richardson recently returned to Australia after a two-week trip to the United Kingdom, where he tried to arrange deals with Super League clubs for some of the players the Tigers are willing to offload. Several players have been presented with offers, but have yet to agree terms.

PNG not ready for NRL, says Jones

She told Australian media that there were far more important issues for Australia to address with PNG than giving them a NRL Team.

“I just returned from Port Moresby. I had a three-day trip to PNG, and I’ve been hearing a lot about the NRL team that they’re setting up. From what I heard on the ground from people in PNG, I don’t think they want a NRL team there.

Comeback kings: Parra power past Sharks as stars return in style

In his first game since Round 3, Moses had his fingerprints all over the much-needed victory with a try assist, 82 run metres and five goals while Gutherson ran for 279 metres.

On the back of a fumble by Gutherson on his own goal line the Sharks struck first through Sione Katoa in the fifth minute after slick passing from halves Braydon Trindall and Daniel Atkinson.

Six minutes later the home side hit back when centre Will Penisini brushed aside opposing number Kayal Iro to cross wide out before Maika Sivo strolled over on the right side and the Eels led 10-4.

Dolphins stun injury-hit Sea Eagles as Fuller stands tall

The Sea Eagles lost superstar fullback Tom Trbojevic to a hamstring injury and winger Jason Saab (shoulder) on a night in which they again gave up a 12-point lead to fall to successive losses.

Among a host of stars for the home side, dynamic fullback Trai Fuller was a standout with 155 run metres and a freakish solo try from a chip and chase.

The Sea Eagles struck first in the 10th minute when Daly Cherry-Evans opted to run the ball on the last play and found Ben Trbojevic who put Tommy Talau over in the corner for a 4-0 lead.

Sea Eagles swoop in second half to dowse Eels fight

The game was in the balance until the final moments where the home side pulled away to flatter them on the scoreboard, with Parramatta putting in a much bigger fight than they showed in their loss last week to the Dolphins. 

Eels winger Maika Sivo also crossed for a hat-trick after being recalled to the side, but will be contemplating his choices after being sent to the sin bin late in the second half as his side were mounting a comeback, with Manly instead able to put the game to bed with late tries. 

Spine sizzles as Storm pile on points over Bunnies

Melbourne know how to lift on April 25, having now won eight consecutive ANZAC clashes but Craig Bellamy's men well and truly hit top gear at AAMI Park, running in six tries in the first 36 minutes. 

The win could come at a loss however, with im-form winger Xavier Coates hobbling from the field with a hamstring injury after celebrating a first half hat-trick.

Storm's spine stamped their authority early with Jahrome Hughes chipping the ball in the air for Papenhuyzen who opened the scoring for Melbourne. 

Too good by half: Walker supreme as Roosters rout Dragons

Led by a superb kicking display from Sam Walker, the Roosters made it five wins in their past seven ANZAC Day clashes against the Dragons to send an ominous warning to their premiership rivals.

A horror start for the Dragons with Moses Suli forced out of the game in the opening minute after clashing heads with a rampaging Jared Waerea-Hargreaves on kick-off return.

Six minutes in and the Dragons had the game's opening try when Zac Lomax put Tyrell Sloan away down the right with a clever flick pass and the No.1 put a chip over the top of the oncoming defence.

Gritty Titans dig deep to post first win of 2024

Trailing 12-0 after just seven minutes the Titans looked to be in for another long day but with AJ Brimson and David Fifita standing tall, they broke a six-game losing streak in style.

An early penalty against Titans centre Brian Kelly for a dangerous tackle gave the Warriors field position and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad capitalised when he sliced through from 10 metres out. Shaun Johnson knocked over the conversion for a 6-0 lead.
