The bunker made a spectacular intervention in the Brisbane Broncos clash against the North Queensland Cowboys at Suncorp Stadium with Herbie Farnworth awarded an early penalty try.

The Cowboys had opened the scoring through a Valentine Holmes penalty before Jeremiah Nanai crossed to extend the lead.

The bunker made a serious intervention in the 24th minute to put Brisbane on the board.

Brisbane had been kicked low down the left by Albert Kelly, with the ball deflected into Kurt Capewell’s path. He hacked and Farnworth found himself ahead of Kyle Feldt in the ball race.

Herbie kicked a third into the in-goal and was then brought down by Feldt from behind.

After an age of deliberation from two different offsides, Farnworth was awarded the try, with the bunker believing he would have definitely touched the ball had it not been touched by Kyle Feldt.
