In the offseason, the Sharks worked Hines into position and nailed the game-winning field goal for the second time this year at Shark Park.

Latrell Mitchell missed three field goals for Golden Point to beat Souths, while Matt Moylan missed two.

After seeing the score level on three occasions, the Rabbitohs scored the last try to lock the scores at 20-20.

Andrew Fifita scored a superb solo try to give the Sharks the lead heading into the final 10 minutes of his 2016 Grand Final winning run.

Earlier in the game, Cameron McInnes conceded a free kick before Latrell Mitchell scored to give Souths a 2-0 lead.

Alex Johnston moved into the first top 10 run-scorers of the tournament, leveling Josh Morris with 158.

Conor Treacy fired Johnston outside at the other end of the pitch to get the Sharks back into the contest.

Burgess was penalized for a shot on Wade Graham, allowing Hynes to tie the score at 8-8.

Ronaldo Mulitalo headed home a free-kick from Hynes to give the Sharks the lead with a stunning finish.

“That was amazing,” Greg Alexander said.

After a mistake by Tracy, Mitchell got out of the group from Walker.

Fita opened the game with a stunning solo try to give the Sharks a slim lead.

Tevita Tatola went over from close range to seal the score and force the golden point.

In extra time, Souths missed 3 of Mitchell’s field goals and two of Moylan’s goals went untapped.

Burgess’ dismissal against Mulitalo gave the Sharks field position and allowed the Hens to do the rest in an impressive one-point win.

Here are the key takeaways from the match..

Hines Outshines Walking as a Shark Seal Epic

Nicho Hynes outscored Cody Walker to lead the Sharks to a famous one-point win for the second time this season.

Hynes continued his first season in Sharks paint with 60 rushing yards, a tackle bust, a sack, a try assist and a game-winning field goal.

“Hines for the win and Nicho Hines ice cool,” said Dan Ginane.

“It’s Cronulla night. They did it again in Shire’s death.

“Matt Moylan had a couple of shots, but this guy just can’t seem to crack.

“Nicho Hynes won the game. A game to be told for a long time.

It could be the season that propels the Sharks into the top four.

Greg Alexander and Cooper Cronk credited Hynes for getting out and looking for the ball when the game was on the line.

“A great victory for the Sharks who decided to change,” Alexander said.

“Matt Moylan fired two shots and missed. Haynes wanted the ball.”

“So the best part is Nico Hynes let Matty Moylan have two and that’s what he’s done at Shark Park this year to win the game,” Cronk said.

“He got up and gave me the ball and nailed it.

“What a great game.”

Laetrile mixed bag south fell short

Latrell Mitchell had a mixed night at the office as his and Souths’ impressive run came to a dramatic end.

Mitchell wasn’t poor by any means, but he was uncharacteristically quiet by his own advanced standards in the first half, missing the three field goals that would seal the victory for his team.

Mitchell still finished with 59 running metres, three tackle busts, a takedown, a line break and a try, but given his impressive form of late, he is backing himself to win the game for Souths at the death.

“Latrell Mitchell had three or four shots and he picked them to the left,” Alexander said.

Mitchell still did a lot to keep his side in contention until the end of the game, but considering how much he prides himself on standing up in big moments, this loss will be a tough pill to swallow.

Mitchell was frustrated with himself after the game and the result could cost Souths their chances of a top four finish.

Fifita won the clock with a brilliant solo attempt.

Sharks veteran Andrew Fifita may not be what he once was as a player, but he wound up the clock with a brilliant and crucial try reminiscent of the 2016 Grand Final winner.

With the scores tied at 14-14, Fifita picked off several South defenders to score and score a crucial four-point lead for the Sharks at 20-14.

“Andrew Fifata stepped back,” Guinane said.

“Shadows of the 2016 Grand Final. At a critical stage.

“It was his descent that set up his trial some time ago.

“This is Cameron Murray, he’s a great defender who just fired.

Steve Rock has credited Fifita with the energy he brought off the bench in the second half to keep the Sharks in contention.

“He’s been good since he was there,” Roach said.

“Those couple are just loaded and it shows his strength one-on-one.

“He just pushed them. You can’t make the effort. See how strong it is. He puts his foot down.

“I don’t think any player in the history of the game has scored that try in a grand final.

“There he will make FIFA again.”
