Munster field goal seals win

All the action as it happens from Townsville in Melbourne's Round 12 clash with the Cowboys.

1' Nice from Young Tonumaipea!! Good pressure on the last tackle. Good intent early.

2' A handling error on our first set. We looked promising down the right but need to be more assured with the ball.

4' Early penalty for the Cowboys. Thurston kicks for points and hits the post!

11' Cowboys let us off the hook as Gavin Cooper fumbles the ball over the try line. Still no score to either side.

24' Neither side has opened the scoring yet. Both have scrappy with the ball to start this contest. Smith goes himself from dummy half as Melbourne attack but is held up.

29' So close! Chambers nearly finds Suli with a grubber. We're not too far away.

30' We can feel something is coming! Thurston caught in goal and we get a repeat set.

38' Jahrome Hughes looking very sharp out there tonight in his first match for the year. Great signs!

42' Hughes picks up where he left off. A brilliant take under the high ball!

46' Our defence holds out a Cowboys raid and Suli flies away! What a sight he is in full flight.

52' Quick hands down the left but the ball goes to ground. We keep trying to find that killer pass.

57' WOW! That had it all. The high ball hit the deck and then Suli comes up with it, breaks away and offloads. Josh Addo-Carr then sets us on the attack!

63' The game is tightening up now. Munster cleans up in defence and earns a penalty. Scores remain level.

66' What a set!! We nearly go the length. Repeat set coming up.

68' Smith to Vunivalu. Nearly!! We keep pressing for points.

71' Cowboys get a penalty but fail to find touch! We're back in possession.

75' Morgan goes over the line but the Bunker rules obstruction on Dale! A let off right there.
