  • The Storm recorded their highest score and win at AAMI Park, after giving the Eels a 64-4 hiding, the loss all but handed the Eels their 2nd consecutive wooden spoon after the Tigers beat the Dragons the day before, which put the Tigers 3 wins clear of Parramatta with 2 games to play, the Dragons were only 2 wins clear of Parramatta at that point, but due to the differential gap between the 2 teams, it was almost impossible for them to receive it.
  • This round ended the finals hopes of Brisbane and Canberra, the former losing to Penrith, who kept their slim finals hopes alive in and the process, the latter losing to Manly, who all but secured their place in the top 4 with the win.

  • The South Sydney-Sydney Roosters match drew the largest attendance for a standalone home and away game in the competition's history[4]
  • The final 8 was decided after the Titans-Storm match, after the Warriors had lost earlier in the day to the Dragons, the Titans had to beat Melbourne and hope the Tigers beat the Cowboys (which didn't end up happening) for them to make the 8, despite a strong effort from the Titans they eventually went down in Golden Point to Melbourne, meaning no team could get in or fall out of the 8 from this point on.
