Moments later, the Blues would make another break down the left hand side, and, after Jack Wighton was tackled before he coulf find James Tedesco in support, a shift right on the next play saw Cameron Munster come up with a mega one-on-one steal.
The Maroons would almost score a late try, before being held out by the Blues, with a penalty then given away to piggyback the Blues to within a late shot of winning.
