Cowboys Ripped Off, by Missed Chances and Refs
The North Queensland and Manly teams kept up their current NRL form with ultimate winners Manly, holding out the Cowboys 24-20. Manly leapt away to a 24-6 lead and surely had the game in the bag, but the Cowboys led by a masterful game from JT, really came back strongly in the second half. Failing at the final hurdle by some absolutely dodgy refereeing decisions and lack of finesse with the final try scoring option, the Cowboys were the best team robbed tonight.
