NRL Round-Up: Bradman Best goes Beast Mode at the perfect time as Tom Trbojevic joins growing list of injured Blues


Latrell Mitchell’s return does little to inspire the Rabbitohs, the Cowboys and Warriors continue to slide, and Bradman Best re-emerges into the State of Origin frame as other options break down.

Here’s this week’s NRL Round-Up.

1. Sea Eagles cough up another first-half lead

Manly has developed something of a painful habit over the last two weeks.

Two games, two sizeable leads established in the first half-hour of matches, two painful defeats at the end of 80 minutes.

The two-point defeat at home to Canberra in round nine can perhaps be written off as a one-off aberration.

But to then lose to the Dolphins, having led 16-4 at the 30-minute mark, cannot be ignored.

“It’s frustrating talking about the same thing,” Daly Cherry-Evans said.

“It’s something we need to fix. We’ve got to change a few things. We can fix it, we’ve just got to work harder at it.”

2. Bulldogs improving, but not quite there yet

The relatively tight winning margin the Panthers achieved on Friday night didn’t quite tell the story on a soaking wet night in Penrith.

Despite being in control of the first quarter of the contest, the Bulldogs were left empty handed in terms of points, with Josh Addo-Carr’s diving effort in the corner the closest the visitors came to breaching the Panthers defence.
