Of the 5 games playes so far this round, the results have been as expected, no upsets yet, unless anyone thinks the Rabbits getting beaten was an upset?

Really good comebacks from the Storm and Cowboys last night.

Sharks were looking dangerous at half time against the Warriors, but failed to go on again.
They just can't score tries and will break the longest losing streak record in a few weeks from now.

Best comeback of the round just now.

Many choked again for the 2nd week in a row with a massive lead.
Manly led 20-nil against Parramatta at half time.
The Eels came over the top (as West Tigers did last week) in the 2nd half to score 24 points to nil.
So 24-20.
Jarrod Hayne was the star of the game, as he often is.

Manly will win at home next week after these 2 losses away for their 1st 2 games.

That try by Lote was awesome, what an athlete, turned the game around just as the Eels were gaining some strong momentum.

Yep, The Cowboy's are a bit like The Raiders, they do not travel well.
2 from 2 so far for me.

The Storm were brilliant against The Dragons this arvo, new comp favourites.
I hope the Roosters smash The Bronco's tonight, hate the Bronco's esp Lockyer, the most over-rated player in history.

Titans comeback ends Storm run


A rare time-wasting penalty helped the Gold Coast stage a bizarre 20-16 comeback to end Melbourne Storm's perfect start to the NRL season at Skilled Park on Friday night.

Titans five-eighth Greg Bird smashed his way over from the penalty for his first try for the club to lock the game up at 16-all in the 65th minute before Mat Rogers potted a penalty goal in front of the posts in the 72nd minute to snatch an unlikely victory.

Storm skipper Cameron Smith was left stunned when his team was penalised for time-wasting while taking a 64th-minute line dropout.

Rogers landed another penalty goal after the siren to complete the upset.

Melbourne seemed in cruise control leading 16-4 at halftime following a hat-trick of tries to winger Anthony Quinn.

It was the second time in two years the Titans have upset Melbourne without their classy halfback Scott Prince, who sat among the 20,083 crowd that were kept on the edge of their seats during the tense final minutes.

Titans lock Ashley Harrison celebrated his 200th NRL game with a crucial try just after halftime which started the Gold Coast's surge back.

Things seemed to be going as planned for the visitors when Quinn crossed for tries in the 14th, 23rd and 30th minutes as both he and Greg Inglis worked over the Titans right-side defence.

Quinn could have had four tries in the opening 40 minutes had video referee Steve Clark not ruled against him in the eighth minute.

Melbourne's opening try came after Titans halfback Preston Campbell spilled the ball deep in Melbourne's half only to see them counter-attack through Cooper Cronk before Quinn crossed for his first.

Former Storm youngster Joseph Tomane put the Titans on the scoreboard with a powerhouse try running through his former Storm team-mate Billy Slater to make it 6-4 soon after.

Quinn was then given the benefit of the doubt by Clark who took about 10 looks at the replay of a "raffle" involving several players scrambling for a bomb.

There was no doubt about Quinn's third try down the short side in the 30th minute that gave Melbourne a 16-4 halftime lead.

But Melbourne didn't post another point.

With more possession in the second half the Titans were able to turn pressure into points as Harrison steamed onto a pass close to the line to cut the lead to 16-10.

Bird was heavily involved, fielding Campbell's bomb on the last tackle before squeezing a pass to the ever-alert Nathan Friend who found Harrison at full pace.

Titans coach John Cartwright admitted he was worried being down 16-4 to the premiers.

"To be behind by two tries against them you have to be worried," said Cartwright.

"To beat Melbourne like that is an enormous achievement, they're machine like," said Cartwright.

Skipper Luke Bailey described the Titans' second half defensive effort to keep Melbourne scoreless as the best for some time.

Storm coach Craig Bellamy wasn't impressed with his side's second half effort.

"We had 16 points at half time and we got beaten 16-0 in the second half.

Not a bad game. Storm were rattled early but came back strong. They are struggling to put points on this year. I don't think they have scored more than 20 in any game yet.

Bad miss by Smith.
