A field goal from Moses Mybe has sealed a remarkable golden point win for the Canterbury Bulldogs over the Wests Tigers.
The Tigers gave up an 18-point lead late to lose in a heart-breaking manner. It was a game that should have won and one they will be kicking themselves over.
The Tigers got the first try of the match in suspicious circumstances, with a forward pass ignored and giving them an early 6-0 lead. The Bulldogs got the second and it was 6-6 at half-time.
Then the Tigers exploded. Luke Brooks set up James Tedesco brilliantly with a kick.
Then he did it again, the Brooks-Tedesco combination working perfectly.
Wests were flying but then Michael Lichaa pulled a try back. The Tigers defence was caught napping.
And then Sam Kasaino set up Curtis Rona with a pin-point pass.
It was game on. With five minutes minutes left the Bulldogs amazingly tied the game when Josh Morris scored an awesome try.
Rona popped the ball up and Morris stepped Tedesco to touch down. Trent Hodkinson nailed the conversion to make it 24-24.
The match went to golden point and then it was Mbye’s turn to be the match-winner. On 83 minutes he let loose an ugly-looking drop goal but it was on target and that was it.
The Bulldogs fans were smiling while the defeat will be a hard one to swallow for the Wests Tigers faithful.
