    NRL round 10 snapshot

    A snapshot of round 10 of the NRL.

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    * Quote of the Round

    "What do you want me to say? No? There's no lack of belief in our guys." Penrith coach ANTHONY GRIFFIN bristles after being questioned whether he had believed his side were capable of coming back from a 28-6 halftime deficit against the Warriors. The history books will show they ran out 36-28 winners.

    * Man of the Round

    With questions about his spot in the Queensland Origin team lingering, North Queensland half MICHAEL MORGAN responded in emphatic fashion as he set up four tries and scored one himself in their 30-14 defeat of Canterbury.

    * Stat That Matters

    The Warriors suffered their worst-ever collapse, blowing a 22-point lead against the Panthers. It eclipsed the 18-point advantage their blew against Manly in 2012.

    * Magic Moment

    The Gold Coast scored one of the club's most memorable wins when Anthony Don batted back an Ash Taylor bomb and Konrad Hurrell crashed over in the dying moments to seal their victory over ladder leaders Melbourne.

    * Talking Point

    Manly are filthy after fullback Tom Trobjevic suffered knee and ankle injuries contesting a bouncing ball against Brisbane on Saturday. The star No.1 was tackled in the air by David Mead and landed awkwardly. Because the ball was allowed to bounce first, the Broncos were not penalised, however, the question remains how the incident was different had Trobojevic been attempting to diffuse a bomb.

    * Judiciary Watch

    Cronulla - Matt Prior (shoulder charge); Sydney Roosters - Dylan Napa (shoulder charge).

    * Casualty Ward

    Parramatta - Corey Norman (knee); Sea Eagles - Tom Trbojevic (ankle, knee); Titans - Jarryd Hayne (leg), Ryan Simpkins (knee), Dan Sarginson (shoulder); Dragons - Euan Aitken (hamstring); Knights - Jacob Saifiti (neck), Josh Starling (hand), Lachlan Fitzgibbon (knee); Panthers - James Fisher-Harris (hamstring).

    * Under Pressure

    The NRL referees are once again under the spotlight after a series of forward passes went unnoticed. Tom Trbojevic's looping ball that set up Jorge Taufua's first-half try against Brisbane was several metres forward. St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has asked for a please explain from the NRL after Cronulla's Sosaia Feki scored off a clearly forward pass.
