Results and Scorers:
RESULTS: 2017 National Rugby League Round 12
All the results and scorers from the twelfth round of the NRL.
In a weekend punctuated by Origin players missing from both sides, things started quietly with the Rabbitohs and Eels - both unaffected by rep selection - clashing in a tense contest at ANZ Stadium on Friday night. The Eels got home despite a late surge from the Bunnies, while on Saturday the Warriors began their "Origin surge", downing a depleted Broncos by eighteen points in front of a parochial home crowd. Later that night both Cronulla and Canterbury went into the 7:30pm clash at Southern Cross Group under-strength, with a late Chad Townsend drop-goal getting the Sharks home by a point. The fourth and final game saw the Raiders do enough to hold the Roosters at bay in the Nation's capital on Sunday evening.
Eight teams had the bye.
