    Live: Newcastle Knights v North Queensland Cowboys

    Cowboys improve their 2012 record to 6-4 going into the Origin period, while the Knights slump to back-to-back losses for the first time this season. For a full wrap-up of the match log on to smh.com.au or pick up a copy of tomorrow's The Sun-Herald. Good night.

    80 min: Cowboys score a bizarre try on the bell after four kicks from three players, including the tryscorer Gavin Cooper. Thurston lands the kick. Cowboys 32-12.

    78 min: Thurston penalty goal.  Cowboys 26-12.

    76 min: Knights caught offside from a 20m restart. They now need a miracle to win this.

    73 min: More heartache for the Knights as Zeb Taia knocks on near the line.

    72 min: Knights fans up in arms after a pass from Darius Boyd to James McManus is ruled forward with the try line in sight. Knights fast running out of time to mount a comeback.

    66 min: Thurston finally makes a mistake - forward pass to Matt Bowen.

    65 min: For good measure, Thurston converts from the sideline again. Cowboys 24-12.

    64 min: Graham in for try No.11 of 2012 after a superb left-to-right cutout pass from surprise, surprise - Thurston. Cowboys 22-12.

    59 min: Thurston turns four into six. Cowboys 18-12.

    58 min: TRY. Cowboys regain the lead after Michael Morgan, in his first NRL match of the season, scores after gathering a Thurston kick that deflects off Roberts. Cowboys 16-12.

    55 min: Knights dodge a bullet as the veteran Tate knocks on only centimetres from the line.

    54 min: Fantastic kick from Thurston forces another dropout from the Knights.

    51 min: Cowboys hold out the Knights, and we have a time out as Mullen is treated for an apparent rib injury.

    49 min: Superb run by Uate, after which the Cowboys are forced to knock the ball dead.

    45 min: Thurston cuts open the Knights defence again and finds Graham in support but the Knights bundle the winger into touch. Queensland could do worse than to select Graham for the Origin series opener on May 23.

    41 min: Uate bombs a try for the Knights by spilling the ball only metres from the try line with not a defender in sight.

    Cowboys kick off the second half.

    Here's Sun-Herald league expert Adrian Proszenko's take on the first half: Nothing separating these two teams after a late, converted try to Chris Houston. If the Cowboys lose a tight one, they'll have good reason to blow up. Mount Vesuvius style. There was no benefit of the doubt when Kane Linnett appeared to score a legitimate try midway through the half. Will it cost the Cows? We'll have to wait and see ...

    40 min: Roberts converts. 12-all at half-time.
    39 min: TRY. Knights hit back on the stroke of half-time with a try to skipper Chris Houston, running off a short pass from five-eighth Jarrod Mullen. Cowboys 12-10.
    37 min: Thurston adds the extras. Cowboys 12-6.
    35 min: TRY. Cowboys hit the lead after a slick back-line play results in Ray Thompson scoring. Cowboys 10-6.
    27 min: Johnathan Thurston nails the sideline conversion. 6-6.
    25 min: If at first you don't succeed ... the NRL's leading tryscorer Ashley Graham scores his 10th try of the season to cut the Knights' lead to two points. Knights 6-4.
    21 min: To make matters worse, Linnett butchers a try, opting to run himself instead of passing to his unmarked winger Antonio Winterstein, who would have strolled over. Ah, who'd be an NRL coach.
    19 min Cowboys denied a second try in three minutes, with the video ref ruling Akuila Uate grounded the ball in the in-goal before Kane Linnett. 50-50 call at best.
    16 min: Video ref denies Cowboys prop Matt Scott a try because of a double movement.
    15 min: Ashley Graham calmly defuses a cross kick from Jarrod Mullen after further sustained pressure from the Knights.
    10 min: Tyrone Roberts converts. Knights 6-0
    9 min: TRY. Knights draw first blood when Junior Sa'u backs up a break from Darius Boyd and scores between the posts.
    6 min: Knights earn a repeat set of six after trapping the Cowboys in the in-goal.
    4 min: Penalty to the Knights. Let's see if they can capitalise on the opportunity.   
    2 min: Knights looking dangerous, only to knock on not far from the Cowboys' line.
    Hello all, teams are on the field. Stand by for kick-off. Knights kick-off.
