Sharks re­group af­ter loss

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
