Sharks battle to keep hopes alive
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.
