Sharks bat­tle to keep hopes alive

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - Shane Ni­chols

THE Moss­man Port Dou­glas Sharks need to win nearly all their re­main­ing rounds if they are to make the fi­nal five teams, ac­cord­ing to coach James Doolah.

At this stage of the sea­son it’s a tough ask, but Doolah still has hopes.

“We need to beat some of the sides nearer the bot­tom and also maybe we’ll score some up­set wins,” said Doolah.

His com­ments come on the back of a dis­ap­point­ing match at the Shark Tank against Broth­ers last week­end, which the Sharks dom­i­nated in the first half but then con­ceded in the sec­ond, go­ing down 40-26.

“We came out of the shed and played re­ally well in the first half. But in the early part of the sec­ond we failed to com­plete three sets, mak­ing han­dling er­rors, and Broth­ers got on the board and our guys lost a lot of spirit.

“You just can’t do that against a side like Broth­ers.”

The Sharks have a bye this week­end and then re­sume pro­ceed­ings with a match against Sub­urbs in Cairns.
