Sharks to tackle Yarrabah

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
