Sharks to tackle Yarrabah
BRING your cheers and support for the Mossman Port Douglas Sharks this weekend as they battle it out against Yarrabah, with both teams fighting for a top 5 position on the ladder and a chance at finals.
After a bye and a chance for all three grades to pick themselves up from a loss the previous week, the Sharks are ready to compete again and have been training hard.
Sharks President Bronson Ryan said Yarrabah are an attacking team and have been training hard to see improvements in their defence.
“We’re toughening our defence every week for the whole competition not just for Yarrabah, we’re trying to be a better Mossman,” he said.
“This weekend if we can improve our defensive we can compete with any team really, that’s what’s been letting us down.
“Yarrabah is an attacking team but Mossman we are an attacking team now and we’ve improved both attacking and working on our defence and if we get our defence 10 to 20 per cent better I believe we’ll be even stronger.
“We’re about improving as a team and every step we take we get closer to improving the results come with it and the club is improving and we’re doing hard training.”
With all grades training hard and working on their weak points, all that is needed to give the Sharks a confident boost is a large supportive crowd to cheer them on this weekend.
“We need the biggest crowd ever to get us home, every home game you should get in and support your local team because its going to get better and better,” Ryan said.
“’We’ve got a lot more home games and the more the crowd get behind us the better we’ll see ourselves, let’s bring the cheering squad back, let’s be heard more and give it to the opposition.”
C-grade kick off at 4pm, reserves at 5.30pm and the big game with the seniors will be at 7pm at the Sharks home-ground at the Mossman showgrounds this Saturday night.
