FLASHBACK FRIDAY: HOHAIA’S BUZZER-BEATER STUNS DOGS

This week’s Flashback Friday relives a stunning Warriors victory strangely overlooked in the annals of the NRL era’s greatest finishes, when a last-minute try to Lance Hohaia stole a 30-24 win over Canterbury at ANZ Stadium in 2010.

The Warriors had led the Round 5 encounter 24-12 early in the second half, but the Bulldogs reeled them in with tries to Luke Patten and Jamal Idris, and appeared set to go on with the job…until Brett Kimmorley shanked a simple field goal chance with four minutes to go.

Lewis Brown conjured the freakish match-winner from halfway, making a break and kicking ahead before regathering when fullback Patten fumbled.

Veteran utility Hohaia – who started the movement – arrived in support to finish off with just 43 seconds on the clock.
