RUGBY LEAGUE: It went right down to the wire in the semi-final between the Whitsunday Brahmans and Wests Tigers.

The Brahmans fought their way back from a 16-point deficit to get back in the game in the second half.

A converted try with three minutes to go tied the scores at 24-all with three minutes to go.

Wests had possession but an attempt at field goal was not rewarded and neither team had managed to score by the end of the game.

It went into five minutes each way, the Brahmans with first possession.

Scotty Evans kicked a field goal to put them in front and it was now their turn to defend in the final five minutes.

They defended well and Wests failed another attempt at a field goal.

The Brahmans won their golden ticket into the grand final.

Coach Phil Ramage said it couldn't have come at a better time.

"It's a major plus get those little one-week injuries rested and get them right for the grand final,” he said.
