The Sharks had looked to have fought off the Raiders challenge inside regular time when Andrew Fifita claimed a last-gasp try. But only to be denied by the video referee, Cronulla and Canberra would enter extra time in search of two vital competition points.

Having already shown a willingness to stand up and be counted when needed in 2015, Valentine Holmes saw another opportunity to make a game his own - and he did - in slotting a decisive field goal to give his side the win.

Re-live all the tense action, and Holmes' field goal, from the final stages of Saturday's match in this week's 'Play of the Week' highlights package now playing on Sharks TV.
