Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

The Un­der 15 Sharks took on the com­pe­ti­tion heavy­weights Cairns Broth­ers last Satur­day at Mann Street and suf­fered their worst loss of the sea­son go­ing down 58 to 8.

Broth­ers are un­beaten so far this sea­son and af­ter hand­ing the Sharks a thrash­ing they also ended any hope of the young Sharks mak­ing the top four.

The boys have strug­gled all year to start games well and seem to con­tin­u­ally make the same mis­takes dur­ing the first half of games giv­ing pos­ses­sion away and miss­ing tack­les in de­fence al­low­ing the op­po­si­tion to rack up three or four tries be­fore the Sharks get their game to­gether

Broth­ers were cer­tainly not a 50-point bet­ter team than Moss­man but the Sharks have worked hard at train­ing all year and can def­i­nitely play a lot bet­ter football than they did against Broth­ers.

With only two games re­main­ing for the sea­son, the boys will be look­ing to fin­ish on a pos­i­tive note and play to their po­ten­tial.

With less than 10 min­utes re­main­ing, a Broth­ers’ player was sent off and an­other one sin-binned while a Moss­man player was also sin-binned af­ter an ugly in­ci­dent.

The Broth­ers’ team lacked dis­ci­pline and one of their play­ers who was sent off, could re­ceive a lengthy sus­pen­sion.

Quin­lyn Can­non, Wynn Adams and Dicky Jack­son put in a great ef­fort in the backs while Matty Glad­man, Jake McCor­mack and Bryce Caltabi­ano tried their hard­est in the for­wards. Man-of-the-match was given to Quin­lyn Can­non for his ef­fort in de­fence
