An undefeated Magic Round for the competition's four Queensland sides has seen them all make significant strides in the Power Rankings ahead of Round 11. 

The Dolphins have made the biggest jump after upsetting the Sharks to earn coach Wayne Bennett a victory in his 900th game, with the newcomers heading into their bye round sitting third in the rankings and fifth on the Telstra Premiership ladder. 

After finding themselves languishing in 16th place heading into last weekend, a 20-6 win over the Roosters has North Queensland up six places, while the Titans are up three to sit fourth. 

The Broncos meanwhile have bounced back to be second behind the Rabbitohs, who have gone top after a 16-point win over the Storm last Saturday.

The Sharks, who topped the rankings after Round 9, are the big fallers this week, dropping from first place all the way to seventh after their loss to the Dolphins. 

After making aggressive moves up the rankings and ladder last week, the Roosters stalled with a shock loss to the Cowboys and are down five spots to eighth in the rankings and on the ladder.

The Warriors have paid the price for three-straight defeats and are down a further four spots to 16th ahead of Friday night's clash against the Bulldogs. 

The biggest discrepancy between ladder standing and rankings position sits with the Warriors too, with their ladder spot of 11th being five spots higher than their power ranking.
