Brisbane beneficiaries of bunker generosity with early penalty try against Cowboys

Brisbane Broncos, featured, League, North Queensland Cowboys, NRL

The bunker has made a dramatic intervention in the Brisbane Broncos v North Queensland Cowboys clash at Suncorp Stadium with Herbie Farnworth awarded an early penalty try.

The Cowboys had opened the scoring through a Valentine Holmes penalty goal before Jeremiah Nanai crossed to extend the lead.

The bunker made a serious intervention in the 24th minute to get Brisbane on the board.

Brisbane had kicked low down the left through Albert Kelly, with the ball deflected into the path of Kurt Capewell. He hacked on, and Farnworth found himself ahead of Kyle Feldt in the race for the ball.

Herbie kicked a third time into the in-goal and was then felled by Feldt from behind.

After an age of deliberation of two different offsides, Farnworth was awarded the try, with the bunker deeming that he was certainly have touched the ball down had he not been touched by Kyle Feldt.
