Watch: Nightingale produces assist of the season

Kiwis winger Jason Nightingale has produced one of the best try assists of the NRL season setting up Dragons teammate Tim Lafai for a try against the Raiders last night.

After the ball was spread to the left flank, Nightingale tried to cut back inside and bust through some defenders close to the line.

However, it looked like the Raiders would push him over the dead ball line, so he pulled out something special from his bag of tricks.

As he was going out he got his right hand free and threw a backwards no-look flick pass back on the inside to Lafai, who completed the four pointer.

Brad Fittler had it right when he said: "There are some things in this game which words just can't explain."

"That is unbelievable. It's freakish," said Andrew Johns.

The Dragons went onto the win the thriller in golden point as a wayward Jack Wighton pass handed St George Illawarra the 16-12 win at Kogarah.

Canberra kept the ball alive after the siren on Thursday night in the first stanza of extra time and Wighton inexplicably threw the Steeden to Euan Aitken who raced 20m to claim the win.
