Murray Taulagi, salute.

The North Queensland winger pulled off a miraculous overhead pass in Sunday night’s Magic Round clash with the Wests Tigers to send Suncorp Stadium into a frenzy.

In the eighth minute of the Round 10 contest, the Cowboys spread the ball to Taulagi who sprinted to the corner flag looking for the team’s first down.

But Tigers halfback Jackson Hastings wrapped his arms around the 23-year-old, putting him in contact – or so he thought.

Taulagi was able to put the Steeden back into play despite being suspended in the air beyond the dead ball line.

Cowboys fullback Scott Drinkwater grabbed the footy and completed what was billed as one of the first try contenders of the year.

“It’s great, it’s absolutely amazing from Taulagi,” former New South Wales representative Michael Ennis told Fox League.

“That is, millimeters, millimeters off the ground inside Drinkwater.”

Tigers great Benji Marshall continued: “I’ve never seen anything like it… he’s going down without seeing his player.

“It’s phenomenal.”

Fox League commentator Andrew Voss dubbed her the “pass of the year”.

“It’s outrageous,” he exclaimed.

“The Round 10 magic trick. Murray Taulagi, we salute you.

” It’s incredible. This is truly wonderful rugby league, if not defying normal rugby league.

“You can’t practice that…absolutely extraordinary.”

Taulagi’s night only got better, with the New Zealander scoring a brace to help North Queensland to a comprehensive 36-12 victory.

Maroons coach Billy Slater reportedly licked his lips as he watched Taulagi in action. The young gun, who played for the Kangaroos Juniors and Queensland Under-20s, joins teammate Kyle Feldt, Broncos sensation Selwyn Cobbo and Storm flier Xavier Coates in a buzzing battle for two wing spots in the opening of State of Origin.

Taulagi’s huge frame, physique, and skill set make him a fit prospect for Origin. He is one of a suite of rising Cowboys stars leading the club’s push for the premiership.

The Cowboys, who completed all 18 sets in the first half, are quickly proving they are the real deal. Committed defensively, brilliantly managed by Tom Dearden and Chad Townsend and capable of electrifying football throughout the park.

Meanwhile, back rower Jeremiah Nanai put an exclamation point on Magic Round with another incredible leap to score his eighth try of the season.
