Obviously missing the injured Billy Slater, the Storm suffered a big 20 – 4 loss to the Canterbury Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon.
The premiership favourites are now only two wins ahead of the Doggies who have now won their past five played.
The Brisbane Broncos may have slipped into third spot behind the Storm and Canterbury last week after being kept scoreless by the Cowboys, but they are still well within reach of the premiership trophy after an impressive 26 – 12 victory over the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Suncorp on Friday night.
Celebrating big Petro’s 300th game, Brisbane and Souths went stride for stride in the scoring department until Brisbane gained the advantage with three tries inside the last 20 minutes, including a Ben Te’o special in the 79th minute.
Another Queensland team making a run for the Top 4 is the Cowboys who blew the Canberra Raiders away in a big 40 – 18 performance at Dairy Farmers on Saturday night.
The other high scoring win was the Sea Eagle’s huge 52 – 14 annihilation of the Sydney Roosters, the chooks failing to reproduce the good form that saw them beat the Tigers 42 – 28 last week.
Speaking of Wests Tigers, the big cats that were being spruiked pre-season as genuine premiership contenders are now in danger of staying in semi-finals contention sitting eighth on the ladder after going down 38 – 20 to the Newcastle Knights at Hunter Stadium on Monday night.
