North Queensland should be up by a couple of tries on balance, they’ve had all the ball with Parra happy to give it to them. Mitch Moses having an off night but his big men are aiming up and Clint Gutherson has been immense in defence. Rival captain Jason Taumalolo also having a massive one, even with 10 minutes in the bin.

36:00 And Moses sends a second straight kick out on the full. Wild stuff from one of the best kickers in the game. Cowboys almost go over through Jeremiah Nanai, went himself with Kyle Feldt unmarked on his outside and Gutherson with a beautiful trysaver. Somehow Parra survive.
