Murray Taulagi, bow.
The North Queensland winger landed a miraculous mid-air pass during Sunday night’s magic round clash with the Wests Tigers to send Suncorp Stadium into a frenzy.
Eight minutes into Round 10, the Cowboys spread the ball to Taulagi, who ran towards the corner flag in search of the team’s first try.

But Tigers midfielder Jackson Hastings embraced the 23-year-old, bringing him into contact – or so he thought.
Taulagi somehow managed to unload Steeden back into the game despite being suspended in the air beyond the dead ball line.
Cowboys fullback Scott Drinkwater took the step and completed what has been touted as one of the early contenders for the try of the year.
“This is brilliant, this is absolutely incredible from Taulagi,” former New South Wales representative Michael Ennis told Fox League.
“That’s millimeters, millimeters from the ground back to Drinkwater.”
Tigers great player Benji Marshall continued: “I’ve never seen anything like this… he’s going down without seeing his player.
“This is phenomenal.”
Fox League commentator Andrew Voss dubbed it “the pass of the year”.
“This is outrageous,” he yelled.
“The 10th round magic trick. Murray Taulagi, we salute you.
“This is amazing. This really is a wonderful rugby league, if not challenging normal rugby league.
“You can’t practice this… absolutely extraordinary.”
Taulagi’s night only got better, with the New Zealander diving in the 18th minute to secure North Queensland’s second attempt of the night.
The Cowboys had a 20-12 lead as the players retreated to the sheds for halftime.
