With a stunning degree of awareness, Gardner took the ball just eight metres from his line and simultaneously stepped off his right foot to evade a charging Mitchell Pearce.<br><br>After dodging Pearce, Gardner looked up long enough to see a chance on the left-hand edge of the field. The 20 year old stepped left around a stunned Shaun Kenny-Dowall, and turned on the speed to get ahead of a desperate Mitchell Aubusson.<br><br>Reaching the 30 metre line, Gardner is faced with defenders Todd Carney and Phil Graham. Gardner’s run has drawn both Roosters to the edge of the field, giving the Shark the perfect opportunity to leave both players flat-footed by changing the direction of his run with a sharp left-foot step.<br><br>He blitzes his way to the Roosters’ 40 metre line and is about to be sandwiched by Carney and Graham on his left, Nate Myles on his right, and a covering Anasta in front of him. But it’s nothing another left-foot step from heaven can’t fix, as Gardner sets his sights on the far corner, puts his ears back, and touches down for one of the best tries in living memory.<br><br><b>Quote: </b>“They put a bomb up and I caught it about 10 metres out from the try line and I just saw a bit of space out on the short side…instinct just told me to have a go and see what I could get out of it. I just took a run down the sideline, I saw defenders coming across so I cut back inside. A couple of the boys slipped over so I kept further infield, I looked up and I saw the corner post so I just went straight for it.”<br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=849&amp;fixtureid=50020101304&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=linebreak&amp;period=2&amp;time=721"><b>CLICK HERE to watch Gardner's try now.</b></a><br><br><a href="http://www.facebook.com/nationalrugbyleague"><b>CLICK HERE to 'LIKE' this try on Facebook now.</b></a><br>
