North Queensland threw the kitchen sink at Parramatta in the final five minutes but couldn’t find a way out – and fittingly, it was a Shaun Lane charge that put out the last real situation attack of the Cowboys. What a game he had!
Parramatta has reached its first Grand Final since 2009 and has a chance to win its first Grand Final since 1986.
“Nobody gave us a chance to come here, nobody gave us a chance in the heat,” Clint Gutherson said afterwards.
“It’s special, but like I said, one to do.”
