    It was a diving try that could very nearly have been for naught as replay footage showed that Holmes was losing control of the ball as he went over.

    However, he managed to keep just a finger on the ball and it was ruled a try, giving Queensland the first points of the night.

    Cameron Smith duly converted the try to give Queensland a 6-0 lead at the 17-minute mark of the first half.
