VB NSW Cup Classics - #7
After the conclusion of a thrilling 2014 VB NSW Cup season, we take a look back at the top ten thrilling finishes from the year.
Coming in at number seven is a miraculous last second victory to the Penrith Panthers over the New Zealand Warriors as they continued their march towards a minor premiership, and ultimately premiership, back in Round 16.
The Warriors looked to intimidate the Panthers pack in the opening half with a number of crunching tackles and brusing hits, but the Panthers were up for the challenge and dished out their own punishment to keep themselves in the game at half-time.
Down 14-6 with only seven minutes remaining, Eto Nabuli exploded into action to score a long range try and help reduce the defecit to two points before a miraculous team try in the final minutes sealed a brillinat Panthers win.
Penrith Panthers 20 (W Blake, E Nabuli, K Kingston tries; W Naiqama 4 goals) def. New Zealand Warriors 14 (R Faitala Mariner, J Tua, S Waetford tries; T Lolohea goal) at Mt Smart Stadium.
