Controversial call denies fast-finishing Eagles

The North Queensland Cowboys have defeated the Manly Sea Eagles 22-20 in controversial circumstances tonight in front of a packed Dairy Farmers Stadium.

After an error riddled start, Manly fullback William Hopoate brought the game to life on 12 minutes. His around the corner ball hit Michael Robertson on the chest, who dived over to cap a remarkable piece of play. Daly Cherry-Evans missed the difficult conversion from the sideline.
