Thriller at Olympic Park

8:39 am on 26 April 2009

The Warriors have come back to force golden point extra time against Melbourne in their Anzac Day National Rugby League clash.

Warriors halfback Stacey Jones struck the upright with a field goal attempt and knocked on a pass to Lance Hohaia before the fullback slotted the one pointer, but that was ruled out and there was no score in extra time, the sides settling for a 14-14 draw.

Elsewhere St George Illawarra thrashed the Sydney Roosters 29-0 and North Queensland beat Manly 26-12 in Townsville.

The Dragons remain second behind Brisbane. The Warriors are eighth, one place below Melbourne.
