Round 24 saw little change in the ladder, with the top 3 all holding on to their spots for another week. The Dragons have fallen two places to 6th after they were brutally defeated 38-0 by their arch-rivals the Bulldogs. The Dragons were booed off at both half-time and full-time by their own fans, with coach Paul McGregor expressing his disappointment in his post-game interview.
It was the Sharks who moved up to claim the 4th spot this week, defeating the Knights 38-12 on Sunday. The win puts the Sharks ahead of both the Dragons and the Panthers, up against the 12th placed Bulldogs next round.
The Raiders have claimed their second consecutive win against a top 4 team, defeating the Rabbitohs 24-12. Despite trailing 12-4 at half time, the Raiders managed to fight back and claim 18 unanswered second-half points, claiming the victory from the 3rd placed Souths.
