WATCH: Do you believe in miracle tries?

Ben Barba scored the winning try in Canterbury’s victory over Newcastle with a stunning effort.

BEN BARBA OF the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs scored a try to remember in a recent Round 25 Match.

The 22-year-old fullback made an acrobatic dive for the ball just as it was about to go dead, performing a near-somersault in his ultimately successful attempts to score the try.

Speaking to The Sydney Morning Herald, the fullback said it was the best try he has ever scored:

“I think I’ve had one of them before, but not as dramatic.”

Barba’s 75th minute try turned out to be pivotal, as it helped his side narrowly overcome Newcastle Knights by 32 points to 22.
