Round two of the NRL got underway on Friday night with the Canterbury Bulldogs beating the Parramatta Eels 32-12 and the Brisbane Broncos beating the Cronulla Sharks 10-2. The Eels were unfortunate because Chris Sandow, Semi Radradra and Tepai Moeroa all got injured but the Bulldogs were too good with fullback Brett Morris playing very well.
The Broncos were too tough for the Sharks in a game that could be called boring, but these are two teams who compete hard in the forwards and work very hard.
On Saturday the Penrith Panthers beat the Gold Coast Titans 40-0 with Jamal Idris scoring three tries and young Matt Moylan once again looking awesome. The Melbourne Storm lost to the Manly Sea Eagles in a close game, 24-22. Manly worked hard to come back from the news that their star players Daly Cherry-Evans and Kieran Foran will be leaving at the end of the year and showed unity after the game.
Many people have picked the North Queensland Cowboys as a team to watch out for this season but they have lost their first two games after they lost to the Newcastle Knights 16-14.
On Sunday, the South Sydney Rabbitohs played the Sydney Roosters in a game that we were all looking forward to. It was a great contest with the best teams and best players in the NRL going against each other and there were many moments to make you stand up and go nuts like this try...
The Rabbitohs won 34-26 but the Roosters will be keen for revenge later in the year. Also on Sunday the New Zealand Warriors got their first win of the season as they beat the Canberra Raiders in Canberra. The Warriors won 18-6 thanks to back to back tries that blew away the Raiders.
Monday night was a sad night for St George Dragons fans with the West Tigers beating them 22-4. James Tedesco who plays fullback for the Tigers was impressive, he's very quick and has been unlucky with lots of major injuries so hopefully for the Tigers he can stay healthy.
