GREATEST CANBERRA RAIDERS MOMENTS: 12. John Ferguson Grand Final try, 1989 One minute and 31 seconds left on the clock in regular time and the Raiders trail the Tigers 14-8. Chris O'Sullivan signals for the bomb at dummy half, and he hoists it high. Laurie Daley bats the ball back to Ferguson, who typically steps his way through the Balmain defence, scoring close to the posts. Mal Meninga's conversion sends the match into extra time, for the most dramatic end to any Grand Final.

The saddest day ever
