NRL Round Up – Round 12

Wests Tigers showed renewed vigour by crushing the New Zealand Warriors 50-6.

Geoff Daniela weighed in with a hat-trick of tries during a whirlwind performance while Lote Tuqiri kept up his enviable try-scoring record with a brace.

There was also a try for skipper Robbie Farah while the inspirational Benji Marshall kicked seven conversions.

The Warriors had only a Joel Moon try as consolation.


St George bounced back from last week’s defeat at Canberra with a workmanline 30-0 defeat of Parramatta.

The loss of Nathan Hindmarsh was too much to overcome for the Eels who conceded five tries.

The Dragons’ backline was in rampant form with tries each for Ben Hornby, Jamie Soward, Brett Morris and Jason Nightingale



Brisbane overcame a stubborn Cronulla side in wet conditions to win 20-4.

Three scores from Darren Lockyer, Antonio Winterstein and Israel Folau were enough to overcome the Sharks who registered a Taulima Tautai score in reply.

Corey Parker kicked two conversions and two penalties to help the Broncos to their  fifth win of the campaign.



Manly held off a resurgent North Queensland to register an excellent 24-20 win in Townsville.

A hat-trick of tries from Manly debutant Dean Whare helped the Sea Eagles establish a healthy lead and despite Cowboys tries from Luke O’Donnell, Ashley Graham (2) and Will Tupou, Manly held out for the win.

They did, however, lose centre Jamie Lyon with an ankle injury.



Melbourne brushed aside a patched-up Canterbury side 23-12.

English fullback Gareth Widdop made a try-scoring start to his Storm career as did Chase Stanley.

To be fair to the visitors, who lost Ben Hannant midway through the first half, they kept trying but scores from Andrew Ryan and Brett Kimmorley was not enough.



Sam Burgess and Dave Taylor led a dominant South Sydney side as they railroaded Penrith 42-22

The pair pulled off several huge hits in defence while Rhys Wesser scored a brace against his old club.

A double for impressive fullback Lachlan Coote was the only highlight in a forgettable match the Panthers.



Sydney Roosters’ yo-yo form continued when they scored an excellent 30-16 win over Gold Coast.

A brace of scores from Sean Kenny Dowall together with efforts from Anthony Minichiello, Braith Anasta and Frank-Paul Nuuausala.

Titans winger David Mead notched a hat-trick in reply but the Roosters were too good.
