First off, thanks to all of the Sharks supporters who made the trip over the hill to cheer on our Senior teams today. Was a huge crowd and the players really appreciated having you there .. and loud! On a day where Club Coach Justin Staben had 18 names on his list of unavailable players for all grades a big thanks to all of the u19s who contributed all day for the Club. Congratulations to a young man with a big future Matt Peebles on his debut in 1sts at #8 where he had a great game, and Kye Blair joined him from the bench. There were another seven u19s who got on the field in 2nds and eleven in 3rds. Fresh off the plane exchange student Jacques Kinnison debuted for the Club in u19s and immediately put his hand up to help out the 3s, didnt take him long to adopt the Club spirit! Unfortunately in their own game the u19s just couldn't get anything to work for them and they went down 0-34. Prior to that game the Womens 7s took the only victory at The Haven for the Sharks. They started strongly and held on for a 19-17 win. Tries to Taylah Welsh, Elana Withnall & Summer Witt with Rachael Elcoate landing 2 conversions. In their second game they were down 0-5 when an unfortunate injury to an opposition player meant a wait for an ambulance and the game not getting to the second half. Good news is that the injured player is now home and recovering. 1pt Taylah Welsh, 2pts Elana Withnall, 3pts Hannah Stewart with players player shared between Mya Harvey & Summer Witt. Thirds started well and after an Oscar Bath try and Rylie Lewis sideline conversion were at 7-7, but that was it for their scoring and game finished at 7-42. While talking of ages, of the players used only three were in their twenties, five were 33 and over and the other twelve were 19 or younger. 1pt Glen Cahill & Harry Layton, 2pts Oscar Bath, 3pts Hayden Davies with Jacques Kinnison the players player. Seconds played well, but couldn't translate that into points and went down 5-24. Solomon Shepherd scored the try. 1pts Solomon Shepherd & Paul Farah, 2pts Tim Newton & Blake Jacob, 3pts Kye Blair with Blake Jacob the players player. First grade were down a converted try in the first few minutes then dominated the rest of the first half to go to the break leading 19-10. Then in the second half every little mistake was taken advantage of by Terrigal and a late flurry of tries inflated a scoreline that should have been much closer, 19-45. Tries to Tom Russell, Matt Anderson & Shaun Townsend. Dylan Cadogan had his first game at fullback, kicked 2 conversions, received 2 coach points and was voted players player - and if you saw the size and shape of his foot after the game you be amazed he could even walk, let alone play so strongly. 1pt Matt Anderson, 3pts in a classic performance Luke Sheridan. Next week seniors play Woy Woy at the Sharkpool. Well done the Waratahs!
