Herbie Farnworth crossed twice as Brisbane Broncos fell to a 38-12 defeat to North Queensland Cowboys in the Queensland derby. 

Herbie Farnworth, 22, was awarded a penalty try in the first half at Suncorp Stadium. Cowboys winger Kyle Feldt obstructed the centre on his way chasing down a grubber kick.

He was taken down in the in-goal area, and the official went upstairs with a penalty try decision, with the video referee awarding the try.

The England-born player crossed for his second try with just four minutes left.

He now has four tries in three appearances so far this season.
