Sunday 4 October 2015 is a date indelibly etched into the memories of millions of Australians. It’s the date that an epic game of rugby league was played by two Queensland teams that goes down as one of the best in history. It’s the date that the North Queensland Cowboys changed their destiny and took extra time to do it. It’s the date that proved beyond any doubt, that rugby league is so much more than just a game.
In loungerooms, bars and sporting clubs, grassy fields and sheds across the country families watched this incredible game play out; repeatedly, the commentators gushed that it couldn’t have been scripted any better.
The Longest Minute is the story of how this game, and the teams that played, affect the lives of one family.
