Winter Season Wrap Up

Winter Season Wrap Up

Thanks to everyone who played, supported, coached, managed or refereed this year – what a season!

B Grade Men – 2017 Premiers!The B Men’s game against Roosters was an exciting match, with many scoring opportunities for both sides. Our boys capitalised on a great first half, leading at the break and withstood a late game fight back from Roosters to will 3-2. Congratulations boys, and congratulations to Player of the Final, Greg Lisle.

Our C Grade Ladies put up a great fight to go down to Saints by 1 in their Grand Final, finishing second overall. Both Saints and our girls showed why they were the last two standing with a tough game that went try for try right up until just before the final hooter, and Saints put in a try to seal the victory 4-3. What a great game ladies, congrats to all of you on a fantastic season! Congrats also to Jacko (Coach) and Lyn (Manager)  – great job!

The A Men’s Grand Final was an absolute cracker! Sharks haven’t been represented in, or won an A Grade Grand Final since 2007. After leadin at half time, Saints fought back and went try for try until about 6 minutes out from full time, where our boys were up by 2. Our opposition fought back again and by full time the score was tied at 9 all. The drop off began with Saints tapping off and scoring in their first set of 6. The pressure was on – Sharks had to score in the next set to stay in it… and we did! A couple of sets later and the hooter went, reducing the teams to 4 on 4. The winning touch down came soon after, final score 11-10 to Saints. Congratulations to all of our Sharks A Men, Greg Lisle (Coach) and Tim Stone (Manager) – you were outstanding this season!
