SYDNEY, March 31 AAP - Snapshot of round four of the N

They said it: "One thing about our game that separates us from soccer if you like is no one dives. But that rule at the moment is encouraging people to (dive)," Penrith coach IVAN CLEARY on the obstruction rule.

Man of the round: BILLY SLATER. Phenomenal against Brisbane with a hat-trick of tries. Superlatives don't do some of his performances justice

Magic moment: TYRONE ROBERTS' show-and-go fooled the Canberra defence a week after North Queensland fell for the same play which led to tries on both occasions. Teams will wise up, but it's great to see a young halfback playing without fear.

Talking point: The obstruction rule. It will be reviewed after round six, but how many NRL games will be decided in controversial circumstances before then?

Injury report: Bulldogs - Michael Ennis (concussion); Broncos - David Stagg (medial ligaments), Josh Hoffman (achilles); Sharks - Todd Carney (foot); Dragons - Cameron King (knee); Titans - Matt Srama (shoulder), Raiders - Jack Wighton (wrist), Blake Ferguson (head); Knights - Kurt Gidley (concussion) James McManus (head)

Judiciary watch: Sea Eagles - Brenton Lawrence (dangerous throw); Bulldogs: Krisnan Inu (dangerous throw)

Under pressure: Canberra coach DAVE FURNER saw his side slip to 1-3 for the year after a poor second half display against Newcastle on Sunday. He needs Terry Campese back in his side soon.
