Vin Diesel named 2017's biggest box office draw

Forbes has put Diesel and The Rock top of its list of the year's top-grossing actors, largely thanks to the success of The Fate of the Furious.

Gadot is in third place after appearing in Wonder Woman and Justice League.

And Emma Watson is fourth - her version of Beauty and the Beast was the year's biggest earner at global box offices.

Johnny Depp is in the top five, one place ahead of his Murder on the Orient Express co-star Daisy Ridley, who has Star Wars: The Last Jedi counting towards her total.

The top five top-grossing actors:

Aussies edge England in Cup opener

The Kangaroos scored three tries to one but England showed they were more than capable of matching their old foe.

While the result didn't go England's way their bigger concern will be the fitness of star forward Sam Burgess, who was sidelined in the first half with a knee injury.

Perfect Storm claim 2017 premiership

The North Queensland Cowboys battled bravely right to the end were barely in the contest right from the outset against a Storm side that were clinical and relentless from the opening whistle in Cronk's final game in purple.

Fifita front of mind for new-look Maroons

The new-look Maroons took to the training field in formation for the first time this week with Darius Boyd running in the uncustomary position of left centre inside debutant Valentine Holmes, Billy Slater reclaiming his right to bark orders from the back and Jarrod Wallace, Tim Glasby and Coen Hess getting used to trucking the ball forward through the middle third.

Stats that matter: Round 7

No need to panic…yet

Dogs finish strongly to down Rabbitohs

Both teams struggled for ideas in attack but the spark from Reynolds was the difference, repeatedly causing the Rabbitohs' flimsy left-edge defence all manner of problems.

Tigers keen to put week behind them

New coach Ivan Cleary is looking forward to seeing his team take the field against the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday night, and many expect him to make changes at the club in the coming weeks.  

"In a way it's been good to come up here and get out of Sydney," Cleary said.

Reynolds field-goal sinks Panthers

A late try to former Rabbitoh Michael Oldfield with four minutes left got the Panthers level after the Rabbitohs controlled most of the second half, before the cool head of Reynolds slotted the one-pointer from 20 metres out to notch up the Bunnies' third win of the season.

Dragons hoping for change of luck at Lottoland

The Dragons haven't won at Lottoland since a 20-18 victory in 2008, with the Red V outscored 118-26 in their past four matches at the venue.
