Broncos and Warriors deadlocked in first NRL draw in three years

The finals hopes of Brisbane and the Warriors remain up in the air after they played out a rare NRL draw, with the scores locked up at 18-all after a 90-minute golden-point thriller on Saturday night.

The Broncos reeled in a 16-6 halftime deficit but it wasn’t enough to avoid the first draw since round 21 in 2016 when coincidentally Cronulla also remained level with Gold Coast Titans at 18-all.

Both Brisbane and the Warriors may have been last-round winners but were still sweating on keeping in touch with the top eight with a victory with identical 6-9 records when they arrived at Suncorp Stadium.

However, they are sweating on their finals hopes after neither side could nail a golden point-winning field goal, with a total of six attempts sailing past the uprights in the 10 minute extra-time period.
