VB NSW Cup Classics - #6
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 six is the second of two miraculous comebacks by the Wests Tigers against the New Zealand Warriors this season.
The Warriors were out to prove a point against the Wests Tigers after suffering a last minute defeat to them earlier in the season.
The Warriors looked to be making good on their intentions midway through the second half when they lead 22-6 over a Tigers side who looked to be having 'one of those days' that would best be forgotten.
A flurry of tries in the final minutes allowed the Tigers to somehow draw level with the Warriors, and with only nine seconds remaining the Warriors were given one last roll of the dice coming off their own 20 meter line when an attempted kick over the top was collected by Jy Hitchcox who ran across the tryline untouched much to the dismay of the bewildered Warriors players.
Wests Tigers 28 (C Brown 2, J Tohi, J Hitchcox, D Abou Sleiman tries; C Brown 4 goals) def. NZ Warriors 22 (K Maumalo, D Bhana, C Tuimavave, J Tua tries; C Tuimavave 2, S Cook goals) at Kirkham Park, Camden.
