Round 13[edit]

  • Heavy storms across areas of New South Wales affected games and attendances throughout the round. The Friday night match at Telstra Stadium was played in a constant, heavy shower of rain.

Many lower grade NSWRL matches were postponed to preserve grounds for first grade matches.
  • The Canberra Raiders scored four tries in the opening 12 minutes on their way to a 38-10 win over the Parramatta Eels.
  • The last-placed Sydney Roosters achieved their highest score since 1935 in their 64-30 win over the North Queensland Cowboys.
  • In the New Zealand Warriors' 300th game, the Warriors suffered their sixth straight loss, losing 4-2 against competition leaders the Melbourne Storm. The scoreline was 2-0 to New Zealand until the 72nd minute, when a decisive try sealed the match for Melbourne. It was the lowest aggregate score (six points total) since 1993.

Finals series[edit]

  • The 2007 Finals Series was based on the McIntyre format. For the first time, teams based outside of Sydney were permitted to host finals matches in weeks two and three in their own cities; previously, all matches after the first week were played at either the SFS or Telstra Stadium. The 2007 Grand Final was played at Telstra Stadium.
  • All rounds in the finals series were shown live in Australia on Channel 9, with the exception of the Warriors v Parramatta qualifying final in week one, which was shown as a delayed telecast due to the time difference between New Zealand and eastern Australia.
