It was a Maradonna moment but Gypsy reckoned he'd spotted this one: Trent Merrin's limp wrist deflecting the ball into touch. Duges scored from the ensuing scrum and Widdop slotted the extras. What a perfectly scripted four minutes of Easter Sunday footy.
And to think it came on the back of one of the league's once most reliable kickers missing an oh-so critical conversion for Penrith. It was enough to bring this grown Red V supporter to scof down another choccy goog.
For the Panthers, the loss couldn't have involved a nicer pair of turncoats. To be fair, you've got to hand it to big Trent and to little Jamie for that matter. There were no histrionics, fist pumps or fingers to the crowd from the two once loyal Red V' ers when they looked to have snatched the game with only minutes to spare. It was true sportsmanship.
76 minutes in to the game and the scene in my lounge room was decidedly different. Lying on the floor in front of the widescreen and with a belly stuffed full of cheap chocolate, I was ready to throw up, just like JDB.
The hooded No7 and mean 13 orchestrated a Penny Panthers try at the death which looked to have sealed the deal for those living at the foot of the mountains.
In the end, Soward's errant conversion and Merrin's last minute miss proved the difference in a game that showcased all the defensive intensity of the Dragons' gutsy win against the hapless rabbits.
There is still a lot to get right but two on the trot won by bees-dick margins are definitely worth birds in the hand. Mary said as much when noting the two points all add up at the end of the season, no matter the scoreline. Genius.
These back-to-back wins are the perfect tonic for the Dragons which now enters a tough period on the road. Cowboys, Broncs and Titans: what odds on winning that trifecta?
While the forward pack is knitting together nicely, problems remain out wide and the team is miles away from matching the current form of the competition's front-runners.
But who really cares? How can you be disappointed with the level of effort the lads have shown since the afternoon snooze session against the Sharks?
Nine penalties and an inability to score does not make great viewing but it's the Dragons' players resilience and commitment to one another that is worth a zillion trophies.
Some laugh at Lafai who is a shadow of his 2015 playing self, but he showed enough again yesterday to retain his spot.
Mata Utai's defensive blunders on the wing are ugly but they're no worse than some of the players' haircuts.
Ned Kelly Wil Matthews is Red V for value off the bench. Perhaps Benny Creagh will now quietly leave the field? And have a go Havili. Surely he has to be involved, somewhere? Rein Man and the Kiwi recruit used in tandem signal double trouble for opposing sides.
A four-day holiday, enough chocolate and hot cross buns to last the season and another epic Dragons' win. Can Easter 2016 be any better than that?
