SYDNEY, August 4 AAP - Snapshot of round 21 of the NRL

THEY SAID IT: "I thought having Oak as our sponsor we'd have stronger bones but it doesn't seem to be working out." Penrith coach IVAN CLEARY on the Panthers ever-growing injury list following broken hands sustained by Sika Manu and Adam Docker.

MAGIC MOMENT: Melbourne centre Will Chambers' first try in the 68-4 rout of Canberra. Ryan Hoffman's grubber was flying over the dead ball line only for Mahe Fonua to leap and flick the ball over his head into the waiting arms of Chambers.

MAN OF THE ROUND: James Maloney - flawless with the boot kicking seven from seven, also added a try to show his State of Origin heartbreak is well and truly behind him.

STAT THAT MATTERS: 64-points. The losing margin by the Raiders against Melbourne, the biggest in the club's 31-year history.

INJURY UPDATE: Rabbitohs - John Sutton (ankle); Tigers - Robbie Farah (dislocated knuckle); Panthers - Sika Manu (broken hand), Adam Docker (broken hand); Sharks - Ben Pomeroy (concussion).

JUDICIARY WATCH: Titans - Greg Bird (late tackle); Rabbitohs - Jeff Lima (shoulder charge)

TALKING POINT: Are the Storm the real deal again after their flogging of the Raiders?

UNDER PRESSURE: Souths coach Michael Maguire. The once high-flying Bunnies have stumbled. Can Maguire right the Rabbitohs against a rampant Storm outfit with both Greg Inglis and John Sutton unavailable?
