A well fought encounter see the Sharks go down 24-14.

Sharks opened the game, kicking off to a strong forward pack from Stortford. Territory gains and losses became a theme with each team making the odd mistake.
Sharks were playing well with great effort from every player but were thwarted by a very strong Stortford pack.
Bishops Stortford scored twice in the first half and converted one of their attempts at the posts.

Sharks received the kick and made a positive start to the second half. Deep in their 22 Stortford turned over the possession once more and tried to move the ball along the back line. Tui Baleisolomone capitalised on an error and with great leg drive powered over the line to score Sharks first points of the game. Tui also converted.

Stortford scored and missed their next attempt at the posts. Sharks replied once again after some sustained pressure and repeated infringements by the opposition. Yuijan Zou busted over the line from a penalty tap. Tui converted.

At this point Sharks had a bit of belief they could get back on terms as the match was coming close to time. But Bishops Stortford had other ideas. Scoring a try and converting it with the last play of the match.

Final score Shelford Sharks 14 Bishops Stortford 24.
