Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

MOSS­MAN Port Dou­glas Se­nior Sharks Rugby League held a trial match against Ed­mon­ton Storm on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

This sea­son the Sharks will com­pete in all four grades of rugby league, Un­der 18, C Grade, Re­serve Grade and A Grade.

The Moss­man Un­der-18s played against the Mount Gar­net Un­der-18s side.

With 18 play­ers tak­ing the field, mak­ing it a 9 on 9 side it was very en­ter­tain­ing for all. This was a friendly match played in good spirit with both sides dis­play­ing good footy. These two sides will com­bine for the re­main­der of the sea­son.

The Cen­tral Tyres Moss­man Re­serve Grade side, the Ed­mon­ton Re­serve Grade side and the Moss­man C Grade side which is dom­i­nated by play­ers from Mt Gar­net played in a round robin for­mat which meant each team played the other two teams in a half hour match each.

All teams played great footy with all teams win­ning one of their games. It was very good signs for the two Moss­man Port Dou­glas teams and there is no doubt that a few of these play­ers will be putting pres­sure on their A grade coun­ter­parts.

The Moss­man Port Dou­glas Cus­tom Kitchens A grade side took in a team of 20 play­ers into the trial match and came away with a win.

Moss­man used the game to trial play­ers in po­si­tions and made nu­mer­ous changes through­out the game to see what com­bi­na­tions could work. At the end of game coach David Grainer was happy with what he could see from his play­ers and looked for­ward to this weeks train­ing to work on a few things he saw.

Next Satur­day the Moss­man Port Dou­glas Sharks will take on Yarrabah in three grades of footy at the Moss­man Show Grounds.
