Roosters: 5. Brett Morris 2. Daniel Tupou 3. Josh Morris 4. Joseph Manu 20. Ryan Hall 6. Luke Keary 7. Kyle Flanagan 8. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves 9. Jake Friend 10. Lindsay Collins 11. Boyd Cordner 12. Angus Crichton 13. Victor Radley

Reserves: 14. Sam Verrills 15. Isaac Liu 16. Nat Butcher 17. Sitili Tupouniua 18. Siosiua Taukeiaho 19. Mitchell Aubusson 21. Lachlan Lam

Result: Things went from bad to atrocious for the Broncos as the Roosters flew into town and completely dismantled their defence. It is frightening to think what the score might have been had James Tedesco passed a temperature test to take is place in the line-up. The Morris twins continued their good form as Luke Keary put on a masterclass in attacking football. The Broncos players should spend a long hard week on the tackle bags.

Score: Broncos 0 - 59 Roosters

Penrith Panthers vs. New Zealand Warriors, Campbelltown Stadium, 6:00pm (AEST)

Panthers: 1. Caleb Aekins 2. Josh Mansour 3. Dean Whare 4. Stephen Crichton 5. Brian To'o 6. Matt Burton 7. Jarome Luai 8. James Tamou 9. Apisai Koroisau 10. James Fisher-Harris 11. Viliame Kikau 12. Kurt Capewell 13. Isaah Yeo

Warriors: 1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck 2. Patrick Herbert 3. Karl Lawton 4. Gerard Beale 5. Ken Maumalo 6. Kodi Nikorima 7. Blake Green 8. Jamayne Taunoa-Brown 9. Wayde Egan 10. Adam Blair 11. Eliesa Katoa 12. Tohu Harris 13. Isaiah Papali'i

Reserves: 14. Jack Murchie 15. Poasa Faamausili 16. King Vuniyayawa 17. Josh Curran 18. Chanel Harris-Tavita 20. Hayze Perham 21. Adam Pompey 22. Leivaha Pulu

Result: A week is a long time in football... one week after blanking the Dragons, the Warriors failed to hit the scoreboard against the ladder-leading Panthers in Campbelltown. Could the hub honeymoon be over? Warriors skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck looked sluggish at fullback, while for the Panthers, Matt Burton scores his first and then his second NRL try, and then Jarome Luai followed up his own kick to give the Panthers a commanding lead at half time. They ran away with it 26-0, and the performances of Burton and Luai will give coach Ivan Cleary a few headaches with son Nathan set to return to play in coming weeks...

Melbourne Storm vs South Sydney Rabbitohs, AAMI Park, 7:55pm (AEST)

Storm: 1. Ryan Papenhuyzen 2. Suliasi Vunivalu 3. Justin Olam 4. Marion Seve 5. Josh Addo-Carr 6. Cameron Munster 7. Jahrome Hughes 8. Jesse Bromwich 9. Cameron Smith 10. Christian Welch 11. Felise Kaufusi 12. Kenneath Bromwich 13. Dale Finucane

Reserves: 14. Brandon Smith 15. Tino Fa'asuamaleaui 16. Ryley Jacks 17. Max King 18. Brenko Lee 19. Albert Vete 20. Darryn Schonig 21. Chris Lewis

Rabbitohs: 1. Latrell Mitchell 2. Dane Gagai 3. Campbell Graham 4. Braidon Burns 5. Alex Johnston 6. Troy Dargan 7. Adam Reynolds 8. Tevita Tatola 9. Damien Cook 10. Thomas Burgess 11. Jaydn Su'A 12. Cameron Murray 13. Liam Knight

Reserves: 14. Mark Nicholls 15. Ethan Lowe 16. Bayley Sironen 17. Patrick Mago 18. Bryson Goodwin 19. Tom Amone 20. James Roberts 21. Keaon Koloamatangi

Result: A rev-up from coach Craig Bellamy sure did help the Storm against the Bunnies, but there's still room for improvement. The game was in the balance until late in the piece, when Cameron Munster set up Josh Addo-Carr beautifully on the left side, and then 10 minutes later, Justin Olan walked in for an easy try from an Addo-Carr assist. The margin was 14 points, but it could have been much closer.

Parramatta Eels vs. Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, Bankwest Stadium, 5:30pm (AEST)

Eels: 1. Clinton Gutherson 2. Maika Sivo 3. Michael Jennings 4. Waqa Blake 5. Blake Ferguson 6. Dylan Brown 7. Mitchell Moses 8. Reagan Campbell-Gillard 9. Reed Mahoney 10. Junior Paulo 11. Shaun Lane 12. Ryan Matterson 13. Marata Niukore

Sea Eagles: 1. Tom Trbojevic 2. Jorge Taufua 3. Brad Parker 4. Moses Suli 5. Reuben Garrick 6. Dylan Walker 7. Daly Cherry-Evans 8. Addin Fonua-Blake 9. Danny Levi 10. Martin Taupau 11. Joel Thompson 12. Curtis Sironen 13. Jake Trbojevic

Reserves: 14. Lachlan Croker 15. Corey Waddell 16. Sean Keppie 17. Taniela Paseka 18. Morgan Boyle 19. Jack Gosiewski 20. Tevita Funa 21. Brendan Elliot

Result: There'll be a few irate Manly fans around after this one - they were denied the win after a last-minute try was called back due to a line-ball forward pass call against Tom Trbojevic. In fairness, Parra should have put the Sea Eagles away much earlier, but some slick second half work from Daly Cherry-Evans and Trbojevic dragged the men in maroon and white back into the contest.

North Queensland Cowboys vs. Cronulla Sutherland Sharks, Queensland Country Bank Stadium, 7:35pm (AEST)

Cowboys: 1. Valentine Holmes 2. Kyle Feldt 3. Justin O'Neill 4. Esan Marsters 5. Ben Hampton 6. Scott Drinkwater 7. Jake Clifford 8. Francis Molo 9. Jake Granville 10. Jordan McLean 11. Mitchell Dunn 12. Coen Hess 13. Josh Mcguire

Sharks: 1. Will Kennedy 2. Sione Katoa 3. Josh Dugan 4. Jesse Ramien 5. Ronaldo Mulitalo 6. Matt Moylan 7. Shaun Johnson 8. Toby Rudolf 9. Blayke Brailey 10. Aaron Woods 11. Briton Nikora 12. Wade Graham 13. Jack Williams

Reserves: 14. Connor Tracey 15. Braden Hamlin-Uele 16. Siosifa Talakai 17. Scott Sorensen 18. Billy Magoulias 19. Braydon Trindall 20. Royce Hunt 21. Teig Wilton

Result: The Sharks were excellent up north despite scares before the game that up to six Sharks wouldn't be able to play after returning high temperatures on arrival to the stadium. Secondary tests cleared the group, but the Sharks still played hot football. Jesse Ramien crossed twice, as did Ronaldo Mulitalo, and the Cowboys never really got going at home.

Reserves: 14. Tex Hoy 15. Jacob Saifiti 16. Tim Glasby 17. Brodie Jones 18. Gehamat Shibasaki 19. Chris Randall 20. Mason Lino 21. Pasami Saulo

Result: The Knights were very impressive, scoring early and continuing to rattle the Raiders right through an entertaining 80 minutes in Campbelltown. The Raiders fought back in the second half, but the Knights regrouped and held firm in defence. Kalyn Ponga was brilliant on his return and he was well supported by Dave Klemmer, Mitchell Pearce, Kurt Mann and Bradman Best.

Reserves: 14. Oliver Clark 15. Billy Walters 16. Chris Lawrence 17. Alex Seyfarth 18. Josh Reynolds 19. Matt Eisenhuth 20. Corey Thompson 21. Michael Chee-Kam

Result: The Titans managed to win their first game in over 12 months with a stirring come from behind win over the Tigers in Brisbane. With the Tigers racing to a 12-0 lead early in the game, it looked like the Titans were in for a long and painful evening. But, they dug in to level the scores 12-12 at half time, before levelling up again 22-22 late in the game. When Benji Marshall kicked a field goal with three minutes remaining, it looked like their efforts had been in vain. They took a short kick-off, regathered the ball and scored the match winner with a minute remaining.

Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs vs. St George Illawarra Dragons, Bankwest Stadium, 4:05pm (AEST)

Bulldogs: 1. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak 2. Nick Meaney 3. Reimis Smith 4. Will Hopoate 5. Christian Crichton 6. Kieran Foran 7. Lachlan Lewis 8. Aiden Tolman 9. Jeremy Marshall-King 10. Dylan Napa 11. Josh Jackson 12. Dean Britt 13. Adam Elliott

Reserves: 14. Trent Merrin 15. Blake Lawrie 16. Issac Luke 17. Euan Aitken 18. Tyrell Fuimaono 19. Matthew Dufty 20. Jacob Host 21. Jackson Ford

Result: The eyes of the NRL world will turn to Paul McGregor this week after the Dragons, for the second straight week, failed to cross the try line. The Dragons were dismal in the 22-2 loss to fellow cellar-dwellers in the Bulldogs, and the blowtorch will deservedly be on the coach. The Bulldogs -- specifically coach Dean Pay -- meanwhile, get some reprieve, and looked better than in previous weeks, crossing three times on the night.

Score: Bulldogs 22 - 2 Dragons
