Tries from Tom Kay
(2), Joe Taylor (2), Brad Wallace
and Joe Valentine
ensured that the Sharks gained revenge for an early season defeat when we travelled to Waterhead with 12 men. The backs got all the points on the days, and even though Johnny Bates and Dave Haddock
didn't get on the scoreboard they were a constant threat.
The defensive performance from the forwards (Over 150 tackles from the pack) paved the way for the halves, Sean Gaskell and Danny Binder
to open up the Waterhead defence on several occasions.
4 of the tries were scored from 50 yards out as the backs showed a clean pair of heels to the forlorn chasers.
Man of the Match, Deane Meadows
kept the opponents on the back foot with quick play the balls and great kicking options. Props ben tate
and Peps, ably supported by Adam Robinson, Rob Brogan, Josh Ingram
, Greg Whittaker
and the impressive loose forward O'Neill took all the sting out of the Waterhead attacking options.
Highlights of the day was the return of Danny Bayliss
and Josh Ingram
, both who have been sidelined with long term injuries...the gametime gave them both great confidence.
Many thanks on the day to Ben Heaton
who whilst not able to play did a great job looking after the lads injuries...a few sore limbs on the paddock today....Nothing that Tuesdays training wont resolve.
For those guys heading away on vacation, have a great time, stay fit, only 2 beers a day (LOL) and see you when you return.
