St George Illawarra Dragons National Youth Competition team hooker Reece Robson is proud of the group effort displayed in the 34-30 golden-point win over the North Queensland Cowboys at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane on Friday.
The Young Dragons scored seven tries in the high-scoring affair with five-eighth Jai Field four-pointer pushing the game into extra time before winger Matheson Johns clinched victory.
Robson, who suffered a head clash during the encounter, admits the final minutes were extremely nerve wracking for all involved but is proud to have gotten away with the win.
“It was an extremely tough game but I was proud of all the boys who stuck in there and obviously got away with the win,” said Robson.
“I managed to get a head clash during the game and split it open earlier in the first half so I am presently wearing the headband so as to not get stitches.
“When we got back into it courtesy of the try to Jai Field we were all hoping he got the kick.
“However, you can’t always get everything but we stuck in there during extra time and I am so proud of them all.”
