Sharks lack the bite to tame ver­sa­tile Brothers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

ADAPT­ABIL­ITY is one of the keys to suc­cess in the CDRL and In­n­is­fail Brothers are al­ready the masters af­ter a tough win in Moss­man.

The score on Satur­day night might have ended up 40-6 but In­n­is­fail coach Leon Hal­lie said that didn’t tell the story of the game.

Moss­man/Port Dou­glas started the strong­est, scor­ing the first try as the vis­i­tors ini­tially found it dif­fi­cult to get in the game.

The Leps slowly turned the tide to make it 18-6 at the break and were made to earn ev­ery point against the size­able Sharks pack.

“We had to work hard for it,” In­n­is­fail coach Leon Hal­lie said of the win.

“The score­line prob­a­bly doesn’t re­flect the con­test. That was a good win up there.”

The first three matches have all posed dif­fer­ent chal­lenges for In­n­is­fail.

Round 1 against Tully was ef­fec­tively a walk in the park, dom­i­nat­ing all facets of the game.

The next week they were un­der the pump for much of the game against Ma­reeba, but were in the game right up un­til the fi­nal min­utes.

This Satur­day the Sharks con­front fel­low cel­lar dwellers Ed­mon­ton at Moss­man Show­grounds.

Kick­off from 6pm.
