Brad Dwyer’s sensational Golden Point drop goal features in our Super League throwback
Ahead of this week’s Super League fixtures live on Sky Sports, Rugby League researcher Ian Proctor looks at some previous meetings between the sides and picks out some memorable moments.
March 28, 2019: Leeds 21-19 Castleford

The Tigers ought to have won but failed to set up for a winning drop-goal at 20-20. Four tries apiece and a share of the spoils would have been fair reward but it fell to Dwyer to become the unlikely hero in Golden Point Extra Time.
