Glebe Dirty Reds and Ryde-Eastwood Hawks couldn’t come to a result after Glebe halfback Manaia Rudolph slotted a two-point field goal in the 79th minute at Henson Park.
The Hawks looked to have all the momentum after shooting out to a 16-0 lead after just 15 minutes of action, although the Dirty Reds quickly swung things in their favour. Tries to Manaia Rudolph, John Olive and Eli Roberts cut the deficit to 16-14 at halftime.
The Hawks started the second half as they did the first, with winger Toni Tali scoring what would be their final try of the afternoon.
Wyatt Rangi crashed over in the 69th minute and Rudolph added the extras to bring scores level with 10 minutes remaining, until a Josh Rizk penalty goal put the Hawks in front in the dying stages.
With the result looking a foregone conclusion, Rudolph stepped up when his side needed him the most and slotted a two-point field goal to secure a 22-all draw and keep his side in the top four.
