The Newsroom reviews the first week of the NRL Finals, in which the Titans and the Bulldogs were eliminated.Details
Well, 26 rounds have passed, whittling the contenders down to eight teams that will fight for premiership glory.
This is the line-up for the first weekend. After this two winners get a bye and skip through to a “preliminary final” (which in most sports would be considered a semi-final). The teams they defeated get a second chance next week against the winners of the matches between the teams that placed fifth to eighth on the ladder.
No need for confusion. The Newsroom explains the process and previews this weekend’s action:Details
The Brisbane Broncos narrowly beat the St George Illawarra Dragons 12-8 in torrential rain at WIN stadium in Wollongong.Details
