UNSUCCESSFUL FIELD GOAL NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
Field goal attempt by Shaun Johnson unsuccessful.

Shaun Johnson has a stab at the field goal but it hits the post. That'll be all with just 20 seconds on the clock.

New Zealand Warriors 24-14

77

Hurrell in everything at the end of this contest, he puts the ball down in the corner... wait, nope, there's a knock on there. Tigers 20m restart.

New Zealand Warriors 24-14

75

Breathtaking moment where Hurrell dived through and almost got the ball down inside the dead ball line despite everyone thinking it had already gone dead. Referee confidently calls 20m restart for the Tigers.

New Zealand Warriors 24-14

73

Nothing doing for the Tigers, they rush the ball to the right hand touchline and it doesn't make for good viewing for the Leichhardt faithful. The ball finishes in the Warriors' hands.

New Zealand Warriors 24-14

72

Konrad Hurrell has seemingly put a shoulder charge on Chris Lawrence, without the ball no less - and the touch judge has come in late to point it out to the ref. Tigers penalty.

New Zealand Warriors 24-14

We spoke too soon. Johnson's spilled the ball, the Tigers have it 10m from the Warriors' line!

TRY NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
Scored by Simon Mannering. Conversion attempt by Shaun Johnson successful.

Johnson's on fire! He puts a neat kick through for his skipper and Mannering won't be denied this time. That might just be enough as Johnson converts for a ten point lead.

New Zealand Warriors 24-14

Bold defence from the Tigers forces the error from the Warriors. Wests scrum on their own 10m.

New Zealand Warriors 18-14

61

More superb play up the middle from Shaun Johnson sees the ball kicked ahead... then it's kicked again, but Tim Simona bats it dead. Tigers to drop out, Warriors with another chance here...

New Zealand Warriors 18-14

...but the men upstairs negate Badger's decision, it's NO TRY, knock-on by Mannering ruled. Tigers 20m restart.

TRY NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
Scored by Shaun Johnson. Conversion attempt by Shaun Johnson successful.

New Zealand Warriors 18-14

Liam Fulton makes an enterprising bust down the right side but he's lost the ball into touch, Warriors will get a scrum on their own 20m.

Wests Tigers 14-12

Warriors with a penalty, they look to spread it wide on the last but Hurrell is bundled into touch by Chris Lawrence... and now the Tigers' centre looks light on his feet.

41

Play resumes at Leichhardt. Warriors in possession first up.

Wests Tigers 14-6

That's halftime at Leichhardt... the Tigers dominated large parts and would be happy going into the break eight points in front. The Warriors showed glimpses, including the fantastic Johnson try, but will need to lift to get past a Tigers side hungry to maintain winning form with finals footy still a possibility.

Wests Tigers 14-6

TRY WESTS TIGERS
Scored by Tim Simona. Conversion attempt by Benji Marshall successful.

WOW! A superb individual effort from Tim Simona - he gets the ball out wide inside his own half, gets away from several defenders before kicking ahead for himself... he wins the race and grounds it! Marshall converts for an eight-point lead at the break.

Error from NZ. Tigers scrum.

TRY NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
Scored by Shaun Johnson. Conversion attempt by Shaun Johnson successful.

A great break for the Warriors and it's Suaua Matagi throwing the final pass for Shaun Johnson to score the visitors' first. He converts his own try, reducing the margin to two. Momentum shift in progress!

Wests Tigers 8-6

Nothing doing for the Warriors, they played some panic footy which finished with a kick across field which fell into Tigers' hands.

Wests Tigers 8-0

Great defence from the Tigers at the end of the first set for NZ... Vatuvei tackled and that'll be a handover.
