Sharkies suf­fer heavy de­feat

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Moss­man-Port Dou­glas Sharks suf­fered a heavy de­feat in last week­end’s rugby league match in In­n­is­fail.

The Sharks were to­tally out­played by the Leprechauns and with very lit­tle ball were only able to score a soli­tary try, with Jar­riet Den­man cross­ing the line and con­vert­ing his own try.

The Sharks were again be­low full strength for an away match, with sev­eral key play­ers miss­ing and the fi­nal score of 54- 6 was not pleas­ant view­ing for sup­port­ers.

How­ever, the club is hope­ful of turn­ing its form around when it hosts Ather­ton at the Show­grounds on Satur­day night.

Sev­eral key play­ers are likely to re­turn for the match, and that com­bined with a good home record, gives sup­port­ers hope of a much stronger per­for­mance for their first home game.

The match kicks off at 7pm, and will be pre­ceded by the Un­der-18s and re­serve grade.
