Sharks go on feed­ing frenzy

Weekend Courier - - Sport -

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
