It was a remarable fightback that will go down as one of the best in NRL history.
Parramatta were cruising with a 30-6 lead after 55 minutes. But the Cowboys piled on five tries in 12 minutes to seal a fantastic win.
It was all Parramatta in the first half, Corey Norman crossing first.
Then Brad Takaranghi was put in for a try.
A rampaging Manu Ma’u gave the Eels a 14-0 lead.
Then Michael Morgan got a try against the run of play, giving the Cowboys some hope.
But the Eels finished the first half in great fashion thanks to Semi Radradra.
At the start of the second half the Fijian flyer was in again.
The Cowboys looked out of it until Lachlan Coote sent Matthew Wright over.
Straight after, Gavin Cooper got his first try off a Jonathan Thurston grubber.
Then the pair did it again.
And soon after for a third time. Parramatta was reeling.
The comeback was complete and North Queensland took the lead when Kane Linnett touched down Coote’s kick.
The six-point buffer was enough to get the Cowboys home.
Fantastic for North Queensland who notch their 10th straight win. Heart-breaking for Parramata who remain at the bottom of the NRL.
