* Quote of the Round

"To me his action looked like six again so there might be something worth investigating. It wasn't the reason why we didn't win the match but it was crucial." - Canterbury coach Des Hasler calls for an inquiry after referee Gerard Sutton reversed an important six-again call in his side's loss to the Roosters.

* Man of the Round

Brisbane five-eighth Anthony Milford set up three tries and scored one in their 36-0 win over Wests Tigers to show he is ready to step up if Queensland playmaker Johnathan Thurston is not fit for the State of Origin opener

* Stat That Matters

Newcastle kept a team scoreless in the first half for the first time in 1098 days, but it mattered little as they went down to Penrith 30-20 on Sunday.

* Magic Moment

In an otherwise dour match, Jordan Rapana produced yet another diving effort for the match-winning play in Canberra's clutch win over Parramatta.

* Talking Point

John Grant is again fighting to hold on to his position as ARL Commission chairman following a meeting of club chief executives, which called into question the NRL's ability to deliver the entire financial funding they had promised from the TV rights deal.

* Judiciary Watch

Wests Tigers: Sauaso Sue (grade two careless high tackle)

* Casualty Ward

Broncos: Andrew McCullough (concussion); Wests Tigers: Luke Brooks (hamstring); Josh Aloiai (knee); Sea Eagles Nate Myles (knee); Eels: Michael Jennings (quad), Nathan Brown (ribs); Panthers - Bryce Cartwright (leg), Peter Wallace (groin); Knights - Luke Yates (concussion), Jack Stockwell (shoulder) South Sydney: Adam Reynolds (concussion).

* Under Pressure

Despite having a star-studded Kiwi spine, the Warriors have now lost their past two games to drop to 4-7 for the season. While they are renowned for being at their best through the Origin period, they're a long way from where they were expected to be at 13th on the ladder.
