Watch: Herculean Jackson Hastings tackle undone by potential greatest pass of all time

Rugby League mistake

The NRL’s Magic Weekend has already conjured up plenty of magic moments including a great game between Sydney and Paramatta, a tight win for Souths against the Warriors and a top of the table clash, but in terms of individual moments, the best has come in the weekend’s last game.

Jackson Hastings’ Wests took on North Queensland Cowboys to round off the weekend and although the Cowboys headed for a routine victory winning 36-12, the game has conjured up a real magic moment which perhaps helped inspire them to victory.

Winger Murray Taulagi was headed for the corner within the first 10 minutes of the contest as former Man of Steel Jackson Hastings reached him. Hastings summoned up great strength to carry Taulagi over the touchline. However, the winger was airborne and as he fell to the ground flicked the ball back inside for Scott Drinkwater to score.

The pass is being described as the best ever with the commentary team saying “that’s better than Benji’s flick pass from 05” in reference to Benji Marshall’s moment of magic in the 2005 Grand Final which was contested between the same two teams.
