Snapshot from round 11 of the NRL:

THEY SAID IT: "For us to win the game, we got away with it (but) St George will lap us by 100 (next weekend) if we play like that," - Wests Tigers coach TIM SHEENS after his side's scratchy 20-18 win over Penrith on Saturday night.

STAT THAT MATTERS: 104 tries. That's how many Sydney Roosters fullback Anthony Minichiello has now scored, equalling the club record set by Bill Mullins.

MAN OF THE ROUND: Shaun Fensom. The Canberra lock came up with an astonishing 75 tackles to lead a stunning Raiders' defensive effort in the 20-12 win over Canterbury on Friday night.

MAGIC MOMENT: Benji Marshall's match-turning 80-metre try against the Panthers, in which he ran around four defenders before outpacing Kevin Kingston - a rare highlight in what was a overall poor match.

TALKING POINT: Having snapped a five-match losing sequence, are the Sydney Roosters ready to rumble on the back of a resurgent Todd Carney?


KEY INJURIES: Bulldogs: Aiden Tolman (knee); Raiders: Bronson Harrison (shoulder), Joe Picker (arm); Panthers: Travis Burns (knee); Tigers: Keith Galloway (concussion); Roosters: Lama Tasi (ankle)

UNDER PRESSURE: Bulldogs coach Kevin Moore after his side slipped to a third straight loss against a severely understrength Canberra. The Bulldogs looked clueless in attack, and need to turn things around quickly ahead of Friday night's clash against Gold Coast in Brisbane.
