Only three players stood out of line during Sunday's slate of games as the road toward finals creeps closer and closer.

Canterbury's prop Luke Thompson was sent to the sin-bin during in his side's disappointing 24-44 loss to the Cronulla Sharks.

Thompson's shoulder charge came with 15 minutes left in the first half with his side only down 12-6 after an impressive try himself. The hit that saw him in the sin-bin allowed Cronulla to capitalise, who ran riot late to head into the half leading 30-6.

It has however seen Thomson offered a three-week suspension. The hit was graded as a grade-two dangerous contact, but can be reduced to just two-weeks with an early guilty plea.
