Check out the Finals Week 3 feature below.<br><br><b>Sydney Roosters 32 def. Titans 6<br>The Moment: </b>It wasn’t a scoring play against them that sunk the Titans for 2010, but rather a superhuman try save mustered by Roosters skipper Braith Anasta on William Zillman in the 47th minute. The ‘home’ side trailed by just six points (12-6) when Scott Prince teased the defence and shifted the ball right 10 metres out from the Roosters’ line. The ball was hot-potatoed from Preston Campbell to Clinton Toopi to the unmarked Zillman, who desperately dived for the stripe. But then, wham, Anasta hit him with arms and torso, forcing Zillman and the ball sideways. The ball grazed the corner post for a no-try ruling. And wouldn’t you know it: from the 20-metre restart the Roosters stampeded 80 metres up-field and scored under the posts when Daniel Conn scooped up a speculative, last-tackle pass on the bounce. So from a centimetre away from rebounding back into the contest they ended up trailing 18-6. A 12-point turnaround in the blink of an eye; season snuffed out.&nbsp; <br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=907&amp;fixtureid=50020102901&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=penaltyconceded&amp;period=2&amp;time=482"><b>CLICK HERE to watch Anasta's try-saving tackle on Zillman now.</b></a><br><br><b>Dragons 13 def. Wests Tigers 12<br>The Moment:</b> Trailing 12-6 at halftime, the tentative Dragons knew they needed to be the next to score… or their 2010 season was kaput. Trouble was, all night a rushing Tigers defence had prevented their playmaking five-eighth Jamie Soward from getting clean ball to his dangerous outside men. So in the 49th minute they tried something out of character – a long-range raid that encompassed a width-of-the-field shift. From the left edge 57 metres out from the Tigers’ tryline, the ball was relayed quickly through the hands, Soward just managing to evade the advancing defenders and throw a wonderful spiral out to Mark Gasnier who passed to unmarked winger Jason Nightingale. The Kiwi speedster made good inroads before being nabbed by the Tigers’ cover, but managed a deft inside switch to Gasnier who was collared 10 metres out. From the play-the-ball Soward found a charging Dean Yong who slanted across the Tigers’ goalposts before slipping a wonderful inside ball to the trailing Nightingale for the crucial equaliser. Yes, Jamie Soward’s field goal would later break the deadlock and see the Red V advance to the grand final – but without this crucial 25 seconds of action, Soward’s one-point play would have been immaterial.<br><br><a href="http://www.nrl.com/gameAnalyser/tabId/10910/default.aspx?seasonID=240?seasonid=240&amp;roundid=907&amp;fixtureid=50020102902&amp;videoquality=1&amp;type=linebreak&amp;period=2&amp;time=527"><b>CLICK HERE to see the Dragons' uncharacteristic long-range try which saved their season.</b></a><br><a href="http://www.facebook.com/nationalrugbyleague" target="_blank"></a>
