Round 22, 2007: Surviving a scare from Parramatta's late rally, Brett Seymour's Golden Point effort sealed a Cronulla win. 

Out to snap a seven-game losing streak at the home of the Eels, the Sharks went about surging to a 24 points to 12 lead, before edging out the hosts by a 'Golden' point.

Parramatta opened the scoring through Eel-turn-Shark Eric Grothe and soon shot out by 12, before Cronulla hit back with tries from Mitch Brown, Ben Pomeroy, Luke Covell and David Simmons.

Down by 10, Eels cult figure Mark 'Piggy' Riddell scored a double to keep his side's hopes alive. But with the scores then locked at 24-all, the teams could not be split and the match would be forced beyond the 80 minutes.

Enter Brett Seymour. The halfback stepped up to the mark to slot the decisive one-pointer, as the Sharks went about putting a dent into Parramatta's premiership hopes with a dramatic 25-24 win in front of a crowd of 13,376.
