Lawyers for the National Rugby League say they will defend any legal challenge from the Melbourne Storm's independent directors over the penalties issued for the club's systematic breaching of the salary cap.

On the field, the NRL leaders St George Illawarra beat the Bulldogs 19-6 in Sydney, and the Broncos thrashed neighbours Gold Coast 28-6 in Brisbane.
