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
