Sharks go on feeding frenzy
ROCKINGHAM Sharks’ bite was too much for the Kalamunda Bulldogs in round one of the 2017 NRL WA competition last Saturday with the Sharks romping to a 84-0 victory at Charles Riley Reserve.
With several new starters in their 17, the Sharks looked sharp and ready for a crack at honours, scoring 15 tries and 12 conversions in the victory, with a gallant Kalamunda team outfought and outfoxed at every turn.
“I was pleased with the way it went,” coach Darren Shaw said.
“There were more positives than negatives and we still have some fine tuning to do before our next game, but a good start to the season.”
Caleb Reedy made his return to the club and was the architect of so many moves, as well as kicking 24 points from 12 conversions.
New recruit Benny Leme Pyako from PNG, had a superb debut, scoring twice and setting up two more as the backline of the Sharks looked sharp all afternoon.
Tries: Pyako 2, Hudson 2, Widders 2, Tuiloa 2, Connelly 2, Timlin, Tualagi-Heather, Wright, Potter, Jeffery. Conversions: Reedy 12 from 15.
The Sharks face the South Perth Lions in round two on April 22 at the Franklin Offshore Sportsplex. Harry Rowe
