With the Sharks down 22 points to 12 with under 30 minutes to play, Shane Flanagan called upon Ben Barba to "Go out and change the game."
Barba was subbed onto the field in the place of winger Sosaia Feki, and within minutes the 2012 Dally M Medal winner made his presence felt.
"That was my main objective, and I'd like to think I went out and did that," Barba said.
"I think the boys were always in control, even though they were behind on the scoreboard.
"I know the boys, and I always knew they were going to finish strong. I just added that little bit extra."
The full interview with Ben Barba, courtesy of the Big Sports Breakfast, is now playing on Sharks Radio.
