 Brisbane Broncos
Next Game: The Season has finished
Origin wreaks havoc with NRL contenders
28 May 2017
Top four heavyweights Brisbane and the Sydney Roosters, without a combined 12 State of Origin stars, both suffered defeats in round 12.

The series hasn't even begun but State of Origin has already taken its toll on the NRL competition, with two title heavyweights missing their chance at moving into the top two.

A day after a depleted Brisbane failed to consolidate second spot, the Sydney Roosters missed their five Origin stars in a thrilling 24-16 loss to Canberra on Sunday.

The loss means the Roosters fall out of the top four for the second time this season, allowing St George Illawarra to move into fourth spot on points differential after enjoying the bye.

A weakened Cronulla were the only team inside the top quarter of the ladder to enjoy a win after skipper Paul Gallen inspired his team to a 9-8 comeback victory over Canterbury on Saturday.

However they are still two points behind competition leaders Melbourne, who also got a week off.

Roosters coach Trent Robinson said the Sharks showed how to win through the Origin period.

"This is a really important period to be a really good team. But to be the best team, you've still got to go and win those games," Robinson said after the loss to the Raiders.

"What Cronulla did last night, that was really impressive. To go and win that game against Canterbury like they did, that was really impressive. We almost did it today.

"I feel like we're a good team and a good club to show what we did today, but we're still striving for that. If we want to be the best, we probably could've finished that off. That's our target still."

Eighteen of the 34 players named to play in Wednesday's Origin opener come from teams that entered round 12 inside the top four - seven of which came from the Broncos.

And that heavy representation certainly told, with Shaun Johnson and the enigmatic Warriors taking full of advantage of the baby Broncos to score a sorely needed 28-10 win.

The result came in a week when Broncos coach Wayne Bennett wanted five-eighth Anthony Milford to play against the Warriors if he wasn't picked in the Maroons' starting line-up.

He was eventually selected at five-eighth, with 18th man Johnathan Thurston later ruled out with a shoulder injury.

The Sharks have provided four players to the interstate series, but found a lift from former Blues skipper Gallen, who produced two moments of brilliance to set up a one-point win.

The Bulldogs had lost three of their own to Origin duty, and weren't helped by the early loss of captain James Graham to a neck injury midway through the first half.

In the only other match of the shortened round, South Sydney turned in arguably their worst first half of the season to surrender to a 22-16 defeat to a Mitchell Moses-led Parramatta.
