In a tight contest Parramatta put a dent in Manly’s play off hopes with a single point victory at the Pirtec Stadium. With no tries in the second half Dylan Walker’s penalty gave Manly a 9-8 lead with 20 minutes to go with Daly Cherry Evans drop goal just before half time giving them the edge. But a penalty four minutes from time from Michael Gordon was enough to win it for the Eels. A try and 16 points from Moses Mbye contributed to Canterbury scoring a comfortable 28-14 win over bottom side Newcastle.

The the top end of the NRL the Green machine of Canberra scored an impressive win over leaders at start of play Cronulla to move themselves up to third in the table. Jordan Rapana scored two of Canberra’s four tries and Jordan Croker provided 14 points with the boot as the Raiders ran out 30-14 winners. It gave Melbourne the chance to go top which they duly did with a hard fought golden point win over South Sydney. An Adam Reynolds penalty leveled the scores at 14-14 late on but in the golden point period a drop goal from Cameron Smith took Melbourne above Cronulla to lead the NRL standings.
