Here's your recap of scores, video and reaction after a massive Big Blue, a six-goal thriller in Auckland, red cards galore in Newcastle and a five-goal show in Gosford.
The Premiership trophy is on its way to Moore Park – even Victory’s James Troisi said so - after the two heavyweights squared off at a rain-soaked Allianz and Bobo bagged the winner as the Premiers in waiting continued on their merry way.
Auckland fans were treated to an absolute ripper with fabulous goals – including a Castrio moment of sheer genius - and fabulous entertainment though the home side would’ve been the less happy of the two after giving up a two-goal lead.
Two sides who’d played in China midweek battle manfully but couldn’t find a way to win at a rainy Spotless on Saturday.
Brilliant entertainment - and a dash of controversy - for the fans in Gosford as City cemented their push for third spot with five rounds to go while the Mariners showed plenty of spirit but were unable to bring home that much-needed three points.
It was all happening in the Hunter with a red card to captain and coach to the home side, and the fatigued visitors made them pay to maintain their push for third spot with a fabulous win to end a mammoth stretch of games for Brisbane.
