Was that Johnathan Thurston? or Benji Marshall circa 05 - Kostjaysen broke free, found his halfback who flicked it to no one but in the ensuing play it is knocked on.

We've seen this a lot from Robbie Farah - the grubber put through the legs of the defense allowed James Tedesco to swoop in for the TRY. Marshall matches Thurston's earlier conversion and we're all square again.
