THE GOOD: Sydney Roosters undefeated
The Roosters' horror 2016 season was effectively over on Australia Day, with the Bondi boys struggling to recover from Mitchell Pearce's suspension. This year the Roosters are 3-0 after beating Penrith on Saturday night. It's an encouraging start for the team who were one bad game away from the 2015 grand final.
THE BAD: Wests Tigers capitulate
After a promising first round win over Souths, Wests have scored just eight points in the following 160 minutes and conceding 82 points, falling to last with a -58 differential.
Wests made a decent start, leading 6-0 early and holding Canberra scoreless for the first 20 minutes. The next 60 minutes, the Tigers leaked 40 points and never looked like fighting back. Wests made 16 errors and had to make 70 more tackles.
Wests should expect more pain against the undefeated Melbourne Storm next Sunday.
THE BIZARRE: James Graham's kick.
An early entry to the post-season blooper reel, Canterbury's James Graham showed why forwards should stick to hit ups and leave kicking to the little men.
It happened in the 23rd minute with Canterbury - trailing 6-0 - pressing the Warriors' tryline. Graham's kick went about 10 metres backwards.
Luckily for Graham, the Bulldogs won 24-12.
