Sharks regroup after loss
MOSSMAN Port Douglas Sharks are regrouping after their loss to Edmonton at home 32-14 and preparing to bounce back against Yarrabah this weekend.
A decent crowd supported the Sharks who put in a good game and despite a couple of decisions going against them, the Sharks only went down in the last 15 minutes.
“A couple of referee decisions were debatable and our crowd wasn’t too pleased but the main thing was the game came down to the last 15 minutes and the crowd got a high quality game,” Sharks president Bronson Ryan said.
“Peter Tucks, Harry Cobb, Andrew Garrett, Lyle Murgha and our forward pack Clinton Dodd, Roderick Duncan and Germaine Pryor all played really well along with young Bradly Minniecon.
“He played his second A-Grade game and had a blinder, playing really good footy, it’s good to see a young player come through - he only turned 17 last month and played brilliant, a stand out.”
Training this week will be focusing on their defence line coming into the away game against Yarrabah this weekend and making sure they are in top form.
“We’re staying positive, Yarrabah have got a pretty fast team and are pretty competitive and I think it’s going to be the biggest thing, making sure we’re competing with them,” Ryan said.
After this weekend Sharks come home to fight it out against Gordonvale and then the following weekend is the longawaited tussles against Brothers, the game that was postponed after Brothers refused to play at the Mossman Showgrounds due to the lighting earlier in the season.
