The 2010 NRL Telstra Premiership’s Women in League round provided a cracker weekend of footy with the eight teams to play in this year’s finals starting to look clearer.
In one of the most entertaining rounds this season, Round 16 kicked off with dominant displays by the top two on Friday night. First up the Dragons maintained their position at the top of the ladder with a 34 – 10 win ahead of the Wests Tigers. Then an electric display by the number two Panthers saw them thrash Manly 40 – 22.
The Broncos got back on track and made it six wins from their past seven when they beat the Eels in a low scoring affair 10 – 6. Melbourne couldn’t hold off the Rabbitohs and went down by two points on Saturday, while the Cowboys failed once again and the Sharks won by one 20 – 19.
Sunday saw the Knights improve beyond words from their last outing to beat an injury-ridden Titans team 24 – 16, and the Warriors reigned above the Roosters 20 – 18 in another tightly matched showdown.
The final game of Round 16 saw the Bulldogs claim a shock 18 – 10 victory ahead of the Raiders at Canberra Stadium.
