NRL leaders Melbourne Storm saw their winning streak come to an end in dramatic fashion on Saturday, while there were contrasting victories for Parramatta Eels and Brisbane Broncos.
Daly Cherry-Evans kicked a golden-point winner for Manly Sea Eagles as Melbourne were beaten for the first time since a 20-18 reverse to Cronulla Sharks on May 3.
Joel Thompson's try and six points from Reuben Garrick's boot put Manly 10-0 up at the break, only for Melbourne - looking for a 10th victory in a row - to hit back, aided by tries from Will Chambers and Brandon Smith.
Both teams saw drop-goal attempts kept out by the posts in the additional period, but Cherry-Evans landed the crucial kick in the 89th minute.
Manly had beaten Parramatta in the previous round, but the Eels bounced back against New Zealand Warriors, albeit only after surviving a late scare at Bankwest Stadium.
Both teams scored four tries and kicked three conversions, with the ultimate difference a 53rd-minute penalty by Mitchell Moses.
The Warriors had the opportunity to snatch victory when awarded a penalty deep in Parramatta territory in the closing stages, yet the Eels held on to record a 24-22 triumph, their fourth in five outings.
Brisbane, meanwhile, moved into the top eight in the standings with a 34-12 thrashing of Gold Coast Titans. Kotoni Staggs crossed for two of Brisbane's four first-half tries, helping open up a 28-6 advantage.
It was an eventful game for Michael Gordon, who spent 10 minutes in the sin bin before scoring a try and kicking two conversions for the struggling Titans.
