The Last Time We Met the North Queensland Cowboys, we were saluting the career of a rugby league legend at Allianz Stadium.
In truly exciting fashion, Johnathan Thurston's final game at Allianz Stadium was an exciting battle against the Roosters.
Latrell Mitchell drew the first blood in the opening ten minutes of the match, only for Jason Taumalolo to barge over to lock up the scores just minutes later.
Three unanswered tries to the Roosters saw them appearing to be coasting, only for an inspired Cowboys outfit to hit back with back-to-back tries.
It was a nail-biting finish, but the Roosters would come away with a 26-20 win.
To conclude the match, the Roosters formed a guard-of-honor for the champion halfback and gifted him the match ball.
