NRL finals 2022 LIVE updates: Eels march through to first grand final since 2009

79:00 Moses’ kick goes dead in goal and one last set, 66 seconds left for the Cowboys at home. Cotter with a big run towards halfway. Offloads and frantic passes finds Tabuai-Fidow on the right, stumbling as the Eels hang on.

10 seconds left. Nanai puts it down and that’s it. The Eels are through.

78:00 Cowboys pressing again. Drinkwater bombs. Tabuai-Fidow was off his feet chasing that but all good, Shaun Lane safe underneath and now just two minutes to go. Eels daring to dream

74:00 Gutherson with a nail-biting take of a mid-field bomb, Cowboys muscling up in defence – just 24 metres in that last Eels set as the final five minutes looms. The next mistake could decide this. Now a penalty against Matterson sends North Queensland downfield.

71:00 Cowboys threatening with a repeat set. Hammering away at their line with a big right-side shift. Feldt flies for the corner and we’re checking upstairs for what will be 24-all.

It’s a matter of inches but Feldt has put a foot into touch before taking flight. Eels still lead and looked as though Feldt lost it anyway, fine defensive effort by Sivo to get there.

65:00: Somehow, Parra are off the canvas and in front. A short-side raid led by Mahoney – who’s been fantastic – sends Shaun Lane at them. All 198 centimetres of him hits, spins and hurls a cut-out offload Maika Sivo’s way and he goes over in the corner. Sublime stuff. And this time Moses nails the shot from the sideline. How good.

Cowboys 20 Eels 24
