Live updates: Cowboys v Broncos



That's full-time from Mackay. Cowboys win 26-6. See everyone March 13 in Townsville :). 


TRY! Scott Drinkwater puts up a high ball, which the Broncos let bounce, before it lands into the hands of Murray Taulagi who grabs his second. Holmes converts. 26-6 Cowboys 


TRY! Our left edge combines for early points in the second break through Taulagi. Put that one down to a Chad Townsend repeat set! Drinkwater takes over the goalkicking duties and makes no mistake with the boot. 20-6 Cowboys after 48 minutes. 


Second half underway in Mackay.


Cowboys first half stats leaders: 

Running metres: Feldt (88m), Gilbert (83m), Taulagi (76). 

Tackles: Cotter (21 tackles), Robson (20), Taunoa-Brown (19)


Payne Hass gets sin-binned with only seconds remaining in the half, with the Cowboys opting to take a shot a goal. 14-6 at the break. 


The two Toms combine for a big tackle to force another turnover. A lot to like about the boys defence so far. 


Tom Dearden with a SMICK short-ball for Val Holmes to put him over for our second. Holmes converts his own try. 12-6 Cowboys with 12 minutes remaining in the half. 


TRY TIME! Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow picks up a loose ball, jogs up to the line and just puts a little grubber through for himself to go over untouched. Converted by Holmes. 6-all after 22 minutes. 


Despite a mountain of ball, the Cowboys are strong in defence and hold the Broncos out again. 


The Broncos get on the board early through Jordan Riki. Converted by Staggs. Broncos lead 6-0.


Only moments away from kickoff here in Mackay! 


Both teams have finalised their line-ups, with the Cowboys 1-20 as named earlier today, while the Broncos make a late change to their backline. 


Despite the Young Guns and Mackay Cutters clash being called off a little while ago at half-time due to a thunder storm, the rain has stopped and we are ready for kickoff in just over an hour! 


Rain, rain, go away 🤞
