Kyle Felt has stunned viewers by converting a monster 55-metre penalty goal on the stroke of half-time.
The Cowboys surprised fans when they initially pointed at the posts to attempt the two-point conversion, and Feldt didn’t miss a beat.
The big North Queenslander lined it up from inside his own half, and slotted it cleanly much to the delight of the viewers – and social media went nuts.
Okay I know I'm not the biggest fan of Kyle Feldt but he is a freak #NRLCowboysBroncos

Given how many instances a kick-off has gone a mile dead, it shouldn’t be a surprise really that feldt kicked that from 55 metres. But, one of the best moments of 2018. #nrlcowboysbroncos

A moment of magic from Jonathan Thurston in his last NRL derby set up Coen Hess to give North Queensland victory on Thursday night and put Brisbane’s finals plans in jeopardy.
North Queensland were down with three minutes on the clock, before Thurston’s kick sat up awkwardly for Anthony Milford and into the gleeful arms of Hess to give the hosts a 34-30 victory at 1300SMILES Stadium.
In a match where momentum swung wildy, the Cowboys dominated the early stages as tries from Gideon Gela-Mosby and Jason Taumalolou gave them a 12-point lead midway through the first half.
The next four tries of the game all came to the visitors with James Roberts, Matt Lodge, Korbin Sims and Tevita Pangai Junior all getting on the board before Kyle Feldt, Gavin Cooper and Hess scored for the home side.
Te Maire Martin angled a superb kick for Gela-Mosby to down the ball for a try and after Darius Boyd lost the ball in a tackle, Taumalolou outran Milford for a second.
James Roberts turned the game by collecting an intercept pass from Martin and racing just under 90 metres to half the deficit.
In a mixed night for Thurston, a cross-field kick in his own half led to a knock on from Gala-Mosby and from the next set Matt Lodge scored for the Broncos.
It was an eight-point try for Martin’s contact with Lodge’s head as he was grounding the ball.
A 55m penalty from Kyle Feldt on the stroke of half time gave the Cowboys an 18-16 half time lead, but Sims surging over from close range and then Pangai Junior burst through the line 20m out to seemingly end the game.
The Cowboys had other ideas though and Feldt dived over in the corner and then Matt Scott set up Gavin Cooper to power over the line before yet another late intervention from Thurston in a Queensland derby saw his side triumph.
The loss for Brisbane means the Wests Tigers can move to within two points of the Broncos if they beat Canberra on Sunday.
