In a month where NRL players are encouraged to celebrate after their tries, Molong product Cody Ramsey might have produced the most entertaining act.
A renowned fisherman, Ramsey crossed in the corner during St George Illawarra's come-from-behind victory over the New Zealand Warriors on Friday night and pretended to wet a line in the in-goal area.
Ramsey's four-pointer capped off an epic win from Anthony Griffin's men as the Red V erased an 18-6 deficit in just nine minutes before sealing the result in golden point 19-18.
For every post-try celebration in July, $5,000 will be donated to the Mose Masoe fund as the former NRL player works to rehabilitate after a career-ending neck injury.
Zac Lomax has been a big out for St George Illawarra of late, but the Dragons have never missed him more than they did in a wildly back and forth affair.
Anthony Griffin's side scored four tries to three - including Ramsey's four-pointer after the siren - but Norman's 0-4 conversions kept the scores locked at 18-all after 80 minutes.
Lomax's return looms on the other side of the bye when the Dragons meet Manly, and it can't come quick enough, for Norman's sake more than anyone else's.
"He did have an off night, but he kicked the one that mattered at the end," Griffin said post-match.
"Obviously the last 15 minutes was fantastic and that's probably all I'm worried about at the moment. I'll have a look at how we got to that position but the fact they didn't give up, kept coming, we scored four tries to three... we couldn't kick a goal but eventually they got there.
Norman's first attempt at field goal in the extra-time period also sailed wide before the Warriors coughed the ball up an inexplicable three times in their own end down the stretch, opening the door for his match-winner.
In fairness, Norman nailed a penalty goal for first points of the match and there was a coat of paint in the last effort at sealing the win inside the the distance.
Three of the four attempts came from on or near the sideline and would have been tough for a full-time goal-kicker, let alone a fill-in, but the miss from a far more kickable position following Ben Hunt's 21st minute try looked like it would be the one to rue.
In the end it was Warriors half Chad Townsend, in his first game since making the mid-season shift to the club, who was left ruing an attempt at field-goal with four minutes left with his side up by eight.
It sailed wide and surrendered a seven-tackle set that let the Dragons march up the park and score through Jack Bird to set up the grandstand finish. It was a head-scratcher, even for Griffin.
"I was [surprised], at 18-10," Griffin said.
"I'm glad he did, but I didn't understand why he took it. He obviously thought they were only ahead by six."
Chasing consecutive wins for the first time since round five, the Dragons had all the early momentum, leading 6-0 after 29 minutes only to concede the next 18 straight points.
Tries to Beale, Bird and Ramsey in the final 10 minutes got them out of jail, but they will consider themselves fortunate given the mid-game fade that probably should have cost them victory.
With a bye to follow next week, the Dragons won't pick up a more important two points this season, the win giving them valuable breathing space in a logjam at the bottom of the eight.
