Sharks look down barrel

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE FU­TURE of the Port Dou­glas and Moss­man Sharks is in ques­tion after many dis­ap­point­ing losses and for­feits through­out the sea­son.

Pres­i­dent Keith Pitt and head coach Trevor Cobb are puz­zled why the team’s per­for­mance has plum­meted this sea­son.

How­ever, both are de­ter­mined to amend any con­tentious is­sues be­tween play­ers or within the club be­fore next year’s games.

“I am not too sure what is hap­pen­ing with the boys but it needs to be sorted out be­fore next sea­son,” Mr Cobb said.

The Sharks’ most re­cent and bru­tal loss was against the Kan­ga­roos, who thumped them to the tune of 86-8 in the A-grade clash on Satur­day.

With up to 20 play­ers from both the re­serves team and A-grade team the Sharks bat­tled it out for the fi nal game.

“We would love to thank all the play­ers who have stuck it out ev­ery game and have stepped up to play for the A-grade when they are short on play­ers,” Mr Cobb said.

“These boys had to play two games on the day which is pretty ex­haust­ing for them,’’ he added.

“We are not sure how to fix the club but we are hop­ing that we can re­cruit some new play­ers and re­ju­ve­nate the team.”
