Gold Coast midfielder Jack Bowes joked about kicking a left-foot snap before the game and then went out and did it to add a highlight reel moment to his already busy season.
The 21-year-old has had success running with some of the AFL's biggest and best so far in a month that has yielded an equal best three wins for the unfancied side.
Popping up to snap a cheeky goal with 13 seconds on the clock to steal a comeback 8.11 (59) to 8.9 (57) win over Carlton on Sunday was just another feather in Bowes' cap.
Patrick Cripps was his latest assignment, with the Blues skipper collecting 30 disposals without breaking the game apart while Bowes managed 19 touches of his own.
The Cairns product would've had a kick to take the lead minutes earlier if not for a third-man obstruction, while some savvy defensive work in the closing stages against the Western Bulldogs helped them home last weekend.
Suns coach Stuart Dew said Bowes was doing all the right things in a side that was learning how to win even when the chips were down.
"Bowesy we know he's a real competitor, whether it's out here, in preseason, table tennis, anything - he wants to win," he said.
"You know he's going to find something and really try his best to influence a game.
"And that's all we can ask from someone in his position."
Bowes' quick snap off his non-preferred side was a rare moment of poise in the manic final few minutes of a game Dew likened to The Benny Hill Show.
Adding to the narrative was the fact the 2016 No.10 draft pick had pre-empted the moment.
"Bowesy joked about snapping one off his left in the rooms and he was quick to remind me of that after the game, which was nice," Dew said.
Still catching his breath after another nailbiter, Dew said he had seen improvements despite the scrappy nature of Sunday's victory.
"If we lose that game you sit and look at what you can learn, what can you do better," he said.
"Our challenge is to still get that win but take the lessons out of it, and we've done that so far.
"That's four (games) now (with a margin) under five points. So we're well versed and lucky enough to be on the winning side three times."
