FULL TIME: Parramatta Eels defeated the North Queensland Cowboys 18-16. Thanks for joining us tonight, it's been a pleasure. Why not have a sticky at our match report which will be up at leagueunlimited.com shortly. I'm Luke Wenitong, and it's been emotional folks. Good evening.

Parramatta Eels 18-16

Wow. What a finish. Michael Morgan busted the line and needed an offload to JT but it travels forward and the Eels come up with it. That's all she wrote folks.

Parramatta Eels 18-16

79

Eels regather the kickoff but Hopoate can't handle! Cows have a scrum feed and about 40 seconds!

Parramatta Eels 18-16

Conversion attempt by Johnathan Thurston successful.

And he slots it.

Thurston puts Michael Morgan over, can they do it?

Eels knock on on their own line. Cows with a chance here!!

No try!! Winterstein looked to have kicked it but it was dropped apparently.

Video Ref. Possible Cowboys Try. On field ref says no try.

76

Hayne returns serve. An attacking kick from Thurston is grabbed on the full by Hayne. Could that be the game.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

75

Big play from JT! He had a dropout and found touch. Cowboys scrum feed 20 metres from their own line. Imagine how good the Cowboys would be with another good half! (Actually you could probably say that about most sides).

Parramatta Eels 18-10

74

Ray Thompson takes the wrong option down the right touchline, he offloads to no-one in particular. Ells ball on half way.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

73

Well this has turned into a bit of a humdinger.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

73

And Sims compounds it with a high shot. Sims you silly boy.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

72

HAHAHAHA. JT and Hayne wrestling in the in goal for a minute. Were they serious? Looked like Greek wrestling at the Olympics. Ashton Sims comes in at the end to look like a hard man.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

70

Sandow kicks well on the last to find 45 metres and touch. Turns the Cows forwards around and both sides look out on their feet.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

68

Eels caught on the last with the pill. Cowboys with a chance now.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

67

Big play from Hayne as he tackles Morgan one on one and rakes it but it's ruled a knock on much to Thurston's disgust.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

66

Will the big Eels forwards tire with all this defence they've been doing of late?

Parramatta Eels 18-10

UNSUCCESSFUL CONVERSION NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS
Conversion attempt by Johnathan Thurston unsuccessful.

JT goes left. They needed that the Cows.

Scored by Antonio Winterstein. Kick to come.

Thurston to Michael Morgan who sums it up quickly and loops it 30 metres to Winterstein in space and he's just good enough to plant it inside the left touchline.

Parramatta Eels 18-10

63

Penalty. Cowboys. In front of the posts for an offside Eels play.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

62

Cowboys start a set on half way after a silly Eels offload goes awry.

Ray Thompson went through the gap but Manu Ma'u knocks the ball out. Cowboys needed to score then.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

60

Penalty. Cowboys. Corey Norman ruled to have been offside as he grabbed a loose ball on his own line.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

59

Corey Norman busts the Cowboys wide open, but the ball is thrown to ground and Kane Linnett comes up with it for the Cows, who then get a much needed penalty whichem get up the park.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

56

I just watched 'Goodfellas' again the other night, one of the great movies of all time in my opinion. Pauli Pauli sounds like one of the characters from it...

UNFORCED ERROR NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS
Michael Morgan makes an unforced error.

Morgan can't handle the JT ball. He was eyeing off the defence, who in turn was eyeing off his rib cage.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

54

Geez the Eels are looking footloose and fancy free tonight. William Hopoate is now throwing no look passes to put people away. Sandow ends with it and he chips for himself. No good though, Cows start the set on half way.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

49

David Gower must have copped a bouncer. He'll bat on however, Gower.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

49

Apparently all Joey Johns can dream about is a NSW Victory in Game 2. I reckon he must be dreaming about Jarryd Hayne as well the way he has been talking him up during this game.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

49

Hearts a flutter all over NSW with Jarryd Hayne looking injured. He plays on though.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

46

Double knock on sees the Eels feed a scrum 20 metres from the Cows line.

Parramatta Eels 18-6

43

UNSUCCESSFUL CONVERSION PARRAMATTA EELS
Conversion attempt by Chris Sandow unsuccessful.

Sandow again slices left. He's got to fix the radar or it might bite the Eels later in the game.

Scored by Jarryd Hayne. Kick to come.

Sandow to Pauli Pauli who half busts the line and pops a superb ball to Hayne. Hayne runs around Morgan like he wasn't there to score in the corner.

Teams jog back out. Kickoff shortly. Eels to kick.

Half Time: Parramatta Eels 14 lead North Queensland Cowboys 6. Strange half of football that. Cowboys, if they can sort out their attack may be in with a shot, however the Eels look dangerous from all over the park. Join us in 10 for the second half.

Parramatta Eels 14-6

Sandow fades it left. No goal.

Scored by Ken Sio. Kick to come.

Simple shift to the right and the Cowboys inexplicably don't number up. Sio did well to plant it just inside the right flag.

35

Tate finds touch with a wobbly kick. Tate's 3rd kick of the night!!

Parramatta Eels 10-6

33

Radrada benefited from a scrappy kick and regather from the Eels, all he had to do was pass to Edwards but he held onto it and it's a handover.

Parramatta Eels 10-6

31

Willie Tonga goes over in the left corner for the Eels but the Ken Edwards tip on is ruled to have traveled forward.

Parramatta Eels 10-6

UNFORCED ERROR NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS

Poor play the ball from Antonio. He won't get a look in for Brazil in a week or so with that footwork.

Parramatta Eels 10-6

Cowboys' Ethan Lowe caught on the last down the Eels end. Eels to do the hard yards from their own line.

UNFORCED ERROR NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS

Ray can't take the kickoff, he lets it bounce, and it bounces over the dead ball line. Dropout Cowboys. Terrible stuff from the Cows.

Tate offloads to Matthew Wright who offloads inside to Morgan. Morgan clapped on the pace to split the defence and it's an easy draw and pass to put 'Aussie' Jim Tamou over next to the posts.

Parramatta Eels 10-4

Forward pass on the last sees a handover and the Eels to hit it up from their own line.

Manu can't handle the ball from the dummy half. Coach killer after scoring that one.

WOW. Ken Edwards hits a gap inside his own half, offloads inside to Hayne, who draws Morgan and puts Semi away to score. Quality football that. Poor defence from the Cows.

Paulo put Corey Norman through a gap and Norman only had to draw and pass to Timmy Mannah. He failed the test and knocks on. But it's ruled a dropout to the Cowboys.

A very good evening to you wherever you may be on this fine Winter evening. Tonight we are at Pirtek Stadium, Parramatta country. Tonight the home side welcomes the boys from North Queensland, the Cowboys. In another oddity of this 2014 draw, the Eels and Cowboys have already faced off, up in Townsville just over a month ago. The home side was way too good for the Eels then and will look to carry that dominance into this game. The Eels in Sydney and with their talisman, Jarryd will be a much trickier proposition for the Cows. Can JT inspire them or will the Hayne Plane keep up it's trail of destruction and send the North Queenslanders home sore and sorry. Only time will tell of course, and I for one can't wait to see these two go hammer and tong at each other. By the way, I'm Luke Wenitong and I'll be with you until full time. I'll be back shortly with any team changes.
