    Slater got a spine-tingling reception from the Queensland faithful when he ran out onto Suncorp Stadium for the final time as a member of the Maroons, but found himself a little worse for wear after Mitchell got him with a shoulder charge on his first touch of the game.

    Queensland were awarded a penalty and, on the ensuing possession, were able to get a high kick to the try line were Slater appeared to take a ripping grap and cross for the first score of the game.

    But the video replay showed a slight knock-in in mid-air and the try was disallowed.
