Sharks keen to stay un­beaten

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Moss­man-port Dou­glas Sharks will be out to keep their un­beaten start to the sea­son in­tact when they tackle Tully in their CDRL clash on Satur­day night.

Af­ter scor­ing an im­pres­sive win over Ivan­hoes in round one, man­ag­ing a draw against Ather­ton in round two and hav­ing last week­end’s match against Ed­mon­ton post­poned due to the weather, the Sharks are con­fi­dent of beat­ing the win­less Tully de­spite hav­ing to travel for the match.

Cap­tain-coach Daryl Light­ning said more than 30 play­ers turned up for train­ing on Tues­day night de­spite the weather and were keen to con­tinue their great start to the sea­son.

“They’ve been com­ing to train­ing rain, hail or shine as well as our Cairns boys who do their own train­ing,” he said.

“We’re ready to hit Tully hard and hope to get a lot of sup­port with the club tak­ing a bus down on Satur­day.

“We have a good side and they’re ready to play - I’ve given all the boys a job to do and they’re do­ing it.”

The sup­port­ers’ bus to Tully leaves from out­side the Moss­man Post Of­fice around 9am on Satur­day and costs just $10. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact club pres­i­dent Bron­son Ryan on 0478 027 259.
