Parramatta Eels v Melbourne Storm
Thursday 20 August 2020

Melbourne were held scoreless for the first time in six years in a 14-0 loss to Parramatta at Bankwest Stadium on Thursday night and will be desperate for some troops to return next week with up to five more players potentially set for stints on the sidelines.

Penrith Panthers v Cronulla Sharks
Friday 21 August 2020

A powerhouse display by newly re-signed back-rower Liam Martin and a double to Josh Mansour in his 150th NRL game helped Penrith demolish Cronulla 38-12 to extend their winning streak to 10 matches.

Brisbane Broncos v St George-Illawarra Dragons
Friday 21 August 2020

The Dragons have given Dean Young the perfect start to his six-week tenure as head coach with a 28-24 win over a gallant Brisbane side at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

Gold Coast Titans v Canberra Raiders
Saturday 22 August 2020

Jack Wighton put on a clinic to inspire the Raiders to a 36-16 win over the Titans and give his side’s surge towards a top four finish further momentum.

Wests Tigers v Sydney Roosters
Saturday 22 August 2020

Brett and Josh Morris celebrated their birthdays early with a combined four-try haul and James Tedesco ensured his first match at Leichhardt Oval since leaving Wests Tigers was one to remember, as the Sydney Roosters romped to a 38-16 win in Trent Robinson’s 200th match as coach.

South Sydney Rabbitohs v Manly Sea Eagles
Saturday 22 August 2020

South Sydney racked up their greatest half-time lead in 112 years of rugby league history to thrash the Manly Sea Eagles 56-16 at ANZ Stadium.

Canterbury Bulldogs v Warriors
Sunday 23 August 2020

Canterbury’s slide toward an ignominious wooden spoon to cap the Dean Pay era has continued, with a second-half capitulation turning a 10-point lead into a 20-14 loss to the Warriors.

Newcastle Knights v North Queensland Cowboys
Sunday 23 August 2020

The Knights have won three in a row for the first time in season 2020 but any hat-trick celebrations were put on ice because of fears five-eighth Blake Green has finished his year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
