And then there were six. The champs went down to the much improved Eels who continue to be plagued by off field board room drama. The Dogs escaped with a last gasp win. The Broncos train keeps rolling. The Raiders were saved by 007! The ageless Storm showed too much class. The rampaging Rabbitohs continue to blitz their opposition and Continue Reading...
