The Queenslanders went home empty handed in the Lang Park double header with Melbourne beating Gold Coast and Manly beating Brisbane, while earlier the Roosters destroyed the Warriors.

Sea Eagles silence home crowd for win in Brisbane
A two-try performance from Jake Trbojevic has spearheaded Manly to a 38-24 win over Brisbane that ended its five-game NRL losing streak.
Trbojevic crossed twice in the first half to help the Sea Eagles to a four-point lead on Saturday, before they kicked on after halftime with tries to Api Koroisau and Akuila Uate.
A magical Anthony Milford try from Kodi Nikorima's chip kick in the 63rd minute gave Lang Park crowd some hope, but Joel Thompson replied with his second four-pointer of the night to seal victory.
Jamayne Isaako scored a consolation try but it wasn't enough as Trbojevic finished with a game-high 180 metres and 19 carries.
Brother Tom and half-back Daly Cherry-Evans also starred by playing a hand in five of their six tries.
The crucial win lifts the Sea Eagles from equal last to 12th spot on six points alongside Canterbury, North Queensland and Gold Coast, four points adrift of the top eight.
It also ended a run of six straight defeats — and 11 of their past 12 — away from Brookvale.
However the win may have come at a cost, with young forward Taniela Paseka limping off with a suspected knee injury following an awkward carry early in the second half.
Jake drew first blood early in the contest when he latched onto a Cherry-Evans grubber that was fumbled by both Nikorima and Jack Bird in the third minute.
The Broncos hit back through soft tries to Andrew McCullough and Sam Thaiday from close range, however the Sea Eagles responded with two of their own down their left edge.
Thompson first powered his way over before Trbojevic again latched onto an offload from his brother, giving the Sea Eagles an 18-14 advantage at the break.
The lead would've been bigger if not for a courageous try-saving tackle from Broncos rookie Payne Haas just moments after getting his dislocated shoulder popped back in by medical staff.
The 38 points is the most Brisbane have conceded through the opening ten rounds of the year.
Storm too strong for Titans
A sloppy Melbourne has done enough to secure the points against an injury-riddled Gold Coast in a bruising opener to Brisbane's NRL double header.
Melbourne finished 28-14 winners on Saturday evening at Lang Park, with three second-half tries saving embarrassment.
Christian Welch's sin-binning for a professional foul that stopped a probable Titans try gave the Titans a late sniff.
But with the Gold Coast probing, Josh Addo-Carr scooped up a loose pass and raced away to seal the contest with his 12th try this season.
Looking to snap a run of four-straight losses, the Titans led 14-8 against the defending premiers before being bit by a crippling sequence of injuries.
At one stage, Garth Brennan's bench was empty after Jarrod Wallace (head knock), Will Matthews (head knock), Kevin Proctor (groin) and Keegan Hipgrave (wrist) were all in the casualty ward.
Wallace and Hipgrave returned but another head clash put Jack Stockwell out of action, while Melbourne half Ryley Jacks was also ruled out of the clash with concussion.
Proctor's injury came in a Cameron Smith tackle, with the Storm captain going unpunished despite his awkward effort on the New Zealander.
Melbourne jumped to an 8-0 lead as the NRL's worst defensive team again displayed plenty of leaks.
But, sparked by some big tackling from debutante half Alexander Brimson and some uncharacteristic Storm handling errors, the Titans were able to steady.
Ashley Taylor relished the stability, taking control at the back end of the half to lay on two tries as the Titans went to the sheds up 14-8.
First he went short to Titans debutante Brenko Lee, the Canberra signing barging over in the right corner.
A Billy Slater fumble allowed Mitch Rein to dart 30 metres before Taylor found Dale Copley for another four-pointer.
Injury spoiled the Titans' second-half plans as tries to Felise Kaufusi and Cameron Munster edged the Storm clear for their sixth win of the season.
Roosters claim comfortable win over poor Warriors
The Sydney Roosters have dissected an inept Warriors 32-0 in Auckland, injecting life into their mix-and-match NRL campaign.
In heavy conditions at Mt Smart Stadium, the Warriors played like they had legs of lead as the visitors shaded them in every department.
Jared Waerea-Hargreaves played like a man possessed in front of new Kiwi coach Michael Maguire, but the barnstorming prop was among a host of Roosters to shine.
Cooper Cronk laid on their first-half tries to Ryan Matterson and Joseph Manu as the Roosters pushed 14-0 ahead.
Blake Ferguson, James Tedesco and Isaac Liu scored slick tries in a second spell which was one-way traffic.
Ferguson improved his State of Origin selection prospects, along with a dynamic Latrell Mitchell and a fired-up Dylan Napa.
Thudding defensive hits from Waerea-Hargreaves and Napa midway through the first half established dominance for the Roosters, whose start was almost as dishevelled as the Warriors.
Waerea-Hargreaves was sent to the sin bin for his role in a late scuffle, while Queensland hard man Napa was placed on report for a tackle on Isaiah Papali'i.
A spectacular Napa shoulder charge on Agnatius Paasi in the first half might also come under scrutiny.
The result ended a run of alternating win-loss results for the Roosters, who improve to 6-4.
The high-flying Warriors (7-3) crashed back to earth with a performance arguably even flatter than their previous listless losses to Brisbane and Melbourne.
Guaranteed to drop one place to third, they were blunt without injured playmakers Shaun Johnson and Issac Luke.
They also lacked the metres from their big men and the tight ball control that had been a hallmark of their season.
It is the first time they have been kept scoreless since a 42-0 drubbing more than two years by the Storm.
Young half-back Mason Lino limped off late with a leg injury. This will be an issue if Johnson's sore ankle keeps him out for an extended period.
