2nds beat Lansdowne in dramatic finale

Metro League 1 – Old Wesley 19  Lansdowne 17

Last play of the game with a lineout to Lansdowne on the halfway line Wesley were 17 – 12 down.  A wonderful lineout steal by Mark Robinson and a penalty awarded to Wesley from the resulting mall saw Josh Miller find the corner with an excellent kick where he got every last inch from it. From the lineout Robinson again secured posession and with the forwards driving in to move the mall over the line for Craig Telford to score.  With the sides now level Miller had a very difficult conversion from far out to claim the win.  But even with a strong low sun in his eyes he managed to strike the ball perfectly disecting the posts to seal a dramatic but well deserved victory.
