That’s right! The New Zealand Warriors have won a thrilling golden-point battle over Canberra after Shaun Johnson kicked a 35-metre field goal in a 21-20 victory that consolidates a top-four position on the NRL ladder.

The Warriors were seemingly cruising to victory with a 20-10 lead, but the Raiders fought back to level the scores in the dying minutes of normal time.

In extra time, both teams had chances to win the game, but it was Johnson who came up with the big play, kicking the field goal to seal the victory for the Warriors.

The win is a huge boost for the Warriors’ hopes of making the play-offs, and it comes after a dominant performance from Johnson, who was named man of the match.

The Warriors are now in fourth place on the NRL ladder, and they have a game in hand on the teams below them. If they can win their remaining games, they will be well on their way to a first play-off appearance in five years.
