Magic Moment: Kingy’s Golden Try
Matt King made a fairy tale comeback to the rugby league field in the Auckland Nines, scoring the winning try of the match to take out the tournament.
After a nerve-wracking ten minutes of golden-try extra time, the Rabbitohs had seemingly thrown everything they could at the Cronulla line, but the Sharks’ defence held strong. But leave it to Matt King to make a difference.
Returning to the field after a year in retirement, King could hardly have imagined that he would go on to the winning try on the back of a spurr of the moment short-side play.
