The West Tigers have prevailed over North Queensland 30-10 in a heated encounter at Dairy Farmers Stadium with both sides having to be separated twice during the match.

Bronson Harrison was sin-binned for being third man in after an altercation broke out between Luke O'Donnell and Liam Fulton.

And Ash Graham could find himself in trouble with the judiciary after being put on report for a shoulder charge against Brett Hodgson with the Tigers skipper slipping over at the point of impact.

Both sides struggled with ball control in the humid conditions and were guilty of losing possession at critical stages.

Ben Harris was one of the Cowboys best with some crunching defence and a try while late call-up Dayne Weston and Carl Webb stood out in the engine room.

Robbie Farah was again the Tigers go to man directing traffic around the ruck and scoring one of his own.

Ben Harris displayed some of his renowned defensive muscle forcing a Tigers error before crossing under the posts to bring his new side back into the contest after halftime.

Chris Lawrence put the visitors further in front courtesy of a penalty goal before crossing for a try of his own in the 26th minute off a well-worked backline move.

Tigers five-eighth Tim Moltzen barged his way over in the 75th minute before Liam Fulton found the line in the dying stages to put the result beyond doubt at 30-10.

North Queensland dominated early possession pounding the Tigers line for the majority of the first half before the defence cracked and Ash Graham went over thanks to a Carl Webb offload.

The Tigers managed to get on the board when Robbie Farah scooted over from dummy half for his side's first points before Brett Hodgson added the extras.

Hodgson increased the lead to four after converting a penalty against Matt Scott for a late hit on Farah.

With five minutes remaining in the half the Tigers went 60 metres thanks to some good support work before Bronson Harrison pounced on the loose ball to score under the posts and seize back the early Cowboys momentum.
