#1 Warriors blow massive lead at Penrith
The inscrutable New Zealand Warriors, famous for finding new ways to lose the unloseable, created more unwanted history on Saturday as they suffered their worst-ever collapse against a resurgent Panthers outfit. The Warriors made the most of their opportunities to lead 28-6 at halftime, but they were immediately caught on the back foot by the fired-up home side after the resumption. The Panthers scored four tries in a phenomenal 12-minute flurry to take their first lead of the match, before sealing a 36-28 result and breaking a five-match losing streak via Tyrone Peachey’s late try. The comeback was the equal-10th biggest in premiership history.
#2 Mundy sinks Tigers after the siren
Fremantle’s David Mundy showed nerves of steel to kick an after-the-siren goal and snatch a two-point win over Richmond at the MCG on Sunday. The Dockers led by 30 points after a four-goals-to-none third quarter, but the Tigers stormed back with five unanswered goals to take a late four-point lead. Mundy’s ice-cool angled shot clinched a vital victory, however, and consigned the Tigers to their third straight loss. Incredibly, Mundy also kicked an after-the-siren winner against Richmond less than two years ago.
#3 Wall takes Wizards to Game 7 with clutch three
Boston Celtics had one foot in the Eastern Conference Finals door in the dying stages of Game 6 against Washington Wizards, leading by two points with time almost up. But mercurial Wizards guard John Wall added another chapter to his stunning post-season story by stepping up to drain a match-winning three with just 3.5 seconds on the timepiece. The rivals now head back to Boston for Tuesday morning’s (AEST) Game 7 decider.
