A mammoth body in the middle of the park, Andrew Fifita's quick play-the-ball played a huge hand in the lead up to James Maloney's match-winning field goal against the Warriors last Saturday night. 

On play three, Andrew Fifita received the ball 37m out from the Sharks defensive try line, charging 18m to play the ball 45m out from the Warriors line.

Off the back of a fast play the ball by Fifita, Michael Ennis takes advantage of having no markers set and scoots from dummy half to make a further 25m.

On the last play of the set, 10m out and 10m in from touch, Ennis shifts to Townsend who fires a long ball to Maloney who is centre field and 25m out.

Receiving the ball with two Warriors charging out of the defence, Maloney props off his left foot, running nine meters to his right to snap the field goal 20 milliseconds before Solomone Kata contacts his legs.

A thrilling finish which was ultimately set up by the run and fast play the ball by Andrew Fifita on play three. 

11 in a row - Up Up Cronulla!
