Eels 32, Warriors 24
A really entertaining game in the end. Twice the Eels jumped out to a big lead and twice they were run down...but they held on at the death, and made the scoreline a bit more respectable in the final minute. We'll be back tomorrow a triple header, see you then.
He converts his own try as the siren goes. 32-24.
Gutherson seals it!
They get to the last tackle, there's nobody at marker and Gutherson goes himself - straight through RTS and Hoffman. Absolutely ridiculous goal line defence. Parramatta jump into the top eight!
They don't take the two! It's a tap and they'll stay in possession with two minutes to go.
A sloppy turnover and the Warriors lose it 30 out from their own line! A play later there's a high tackle and you'd think the Eels will take the two just to eat time off the clock.Back to top
Good set from the Eels after we finally get back underway - Matulino gave Alvaro a little push to the face in the scrum but no sin bin - and Gutherson drills it into touch 10 metres out. This could be the last chance for Kearney's men.
The Warriors swing it left and the last pass from Kata to Maumalo was forward, and the winger knocks on to boot. Meek end to what will be one of their last chances to pinch this game. Four minutes to go.
Moses drills it into touch about 15 metres out. The Warriors pack the scrum and we've got about five and a half minutes left.
Issac Luke kicks on the fourth and French comes across to pick it up - they need a good set here, and a solid kick at the end of it.
Johnson converts and it's set up for a nail-biting finish. 26-24.
RTS with a superb solo try!
Here we go! Johnson runs to the right, there's nothing doing so he offloads back to the middle - eventually it ends up with the fullback who steps through some lazy middle defence and dives over.
It's a handover on the last and then Issac Luke shoots 50m up the other end! Ten minutes to go here but we're far from finished!
The Warriors look like they've forced an error but it's ruled that Bodene Thompson has stripped that from Semi. Parra with a chance to kill the game off now.
Johnson converts and it's 26-18.Back to top
Hoffman crashes over!
Game on, perhaps? Foran puts the backrower away through a gap just to the left of the uprights and the margin is back to ten.
Johnson makes a break, is tackled just short of the line and then RTS follows it up with a run that yields a penalty. They pretty much have to score here to keep the game alive.
The ball goes to ground, Johnson tries to throw a pass over the head of Auva'a who bats it down backwards...Will Smith picks it up and carries it 60 metres back before Kata runs him down and then forces an error! Scrum for NZ, but it's all the way back on their own 30 after they were in such a promising spot.
Foran is taken high and the Warriors have a great chance to get back into this.
The Eels have something cooking but Moses throws it over the sideline near the halfway line. Scrum for the Warriors.Back to top
