Two players were sent from the field while another pair received 10 minutes in the bin.
Canowindra was given the penalty following the interruption, but it was the visitors who posted next points courtesy of a clever kick and a brilliant chase which reduced the deficit to 18-16.
A late flurry of tries catapulted the Tigers to a comfortable 44-22 victory, capped off with a try and conversion to Joshua Blake on the full-time siren.
Marika Kirkoroivai starred scoring two tries and kicking multiple goals while Callum Clyburn was devastating in attack, causing drama for Eugowra’s defence throughout the 80 minutes.
