So - a lot happened there! Asu Kepaoa took the bomb, flicked it back, the ball went from Moses Mbye to Adam Doueihi and then to James Roberts who tried to link with David Nofoaluma. It hit his boot and went in-goal and Clinton Gutherson is trapped. Dropout to come.

49min

Mitchell Moses with a testing bomb on the last for David Nofoaluma who does incredibly well to take it under enormous pressure with blue and gold jumpers looming.

Big test for the Tigers' defence, which has looked shaky at times on their own line.
