2014 Magic Moments - The Final Moments - Rd 8
Rugby league is all about magic moments. Whether they’re moments of brilliance, moments that defined a season, or moments that make you pause to remember where you were when they happened, every season has them, and we all remember them. This week, we look at a handful of those moments from the 2014 season so far.
Today, we look at the enthralling finish to the Rabbitohs’ round eight, ANZAC Day victory over the Brisbane Broncos in Brisbane.
With nine minutes remaining and the game in the balance, a one on one strip from Chris McQueen allowed the Rabbitohs to attack the Brisbane line. A decoy play then allowed Kirisome Auva’a to slide over for a crucial four-pointer. Reynolds landed the pressure-kick from short range to lock the game up with seven minutes left.
The game reached fever-pitch as the Broncos struggled to get into position to land a field-goal, but Sam Burgess charged the ball down, before getting a penalty for a strip giving Adam Reynolds a shot from 40 metres out. Reynolds showed great composure to slot it, regaining them the lead at 28-26 for what was a famous victory.
