Jonathan Thurston has beaten the Melbourne Storm in golden point with a field goal.
The North Queensland Cowboys halfback slotted his second field goal of the game to break the Storm’s heart.
It was a pressure-play, and there are no bigger pressure-players in the NRL than Jonathan Thurston. His quality is undoubted.
The Storm will be kicking themselves that they let this game slip. Leading 16-4 late in the game, the Storm should have had the match sewn up.
But Antonio Winterstein’s second try, and one from Jonathan Wright, put the Cowboys back in the hunt. Thurston slotted one field goal in the final minute to send the fixture to golden point.
Then he did the same in the 84th minute, simply amazing. Melbourne head coach Craig Bellamy will be furious.
