The first week of 2017 finals will go down as one of the greatest in premiership history, with all four matches delivering drama, high-quality football and a plethora of unforgettable moments, while each game was in the balance until the dying seconds

The combined margins came to just 15 points, a record-equalling low for a four-game finals weekend that matched the opening round of the 1996 playoffs.

And with the Roosters’ tally of 24 points an unusually low high-score for week one of the playoffs (third-lowest of the eight-team finals era), high-quality attacking brilliance was required to find the stripe.

Here are the best tries of an unforgettable weekend.
