Hall of Fame Moment | 2007

Watched by a crowd of just under 92,000, Sydney ended the longest premiership drought in AFL history by beating the West Coast Eagles by four points in the most exciting and closest grand final for nearly 40 years. With seconds remaining, the Eagles had one last chance to win the grand final when ruckman Dean Cox pumped the ball forward to within 30 metres of goal as a huge pack flew for the mark. It was Sydney’s courageous defender Leo Barry who took a magnificent mark to ensure the Swans hung on to win their first premiership since 1933.
