Sharks’ minds on Ori­gin

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

CRONULLA coach Shane Flana­gan ad­mits his State of Ori­gin stars are dis­tracted by the tight se­ries head­ing into Satur­day’s NRL block­buster with Syd­ney Roost­ers. The Sharks had five play­ers in­volved in last week’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive clash, first in the NRL along­side Mel­bourne.

And af­ter he played all five of his stars in last week’s loss to Manly, Flana­gan now con­cedes rest­ing play­ers af­ter Game Three is on the cards to give the Sharks the best hope of a ti­tle de­fence. “It’s a re­ally dif­fi­cult one at the mo­ment be­cause they are still think­ing about Ori­gin,” Flana­gan said. “I un­der­stand young men and there is a big game a cou­ple of Wed­nes­days away.”
