* Quote of the Round: "You've stuffed up." - Melbourne football manager Frank Ponissi's blunt statement to the NRL ground manager after two Manly players were allowed back early from the sin bin.
* Man of the Round: Tevita Pangai Junior ended Brisbane's win over the Sydney Roosters in the sin bin but it was easily the best performance of his career. The powerful 22-year-old had seven tackles busts and three offloads for his one try assist and 174 metres.
* Stat that Matters: Fourteen players were sin-binned and across every game on the weekend. Meanwhile Melbourne's Curtis Scott became the first player sent off in three years after punching Dylan Walker.
