Dramatic finish to rivalry clash

Two tries in the final two minutes decided one of sport's great rivalries today Down Under.
I listened to the game online as the SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS beat the SYDNEY (EASTERN SUBURBS) ROOSTERS in dramatic fashion.
Rivals since rugby league began in 1908 in AUSTRALIA, the teams annually play for the RON COOTE CUP, a trophy named after the great New South Wales lock who played for both Souths (1964-71) and Easts (1972-78).
Today, Souths' Nathan Merritt scored a try with a minute remaining to close the gap to four points, then Adam Reynolds raced down the field to score the try that leveled the scores as time expired -- and nailed the kick that won the game, 24-22.
