Sharks ground Sea Eagles in Tathra try-athon

DEFENCE took a back seat on Sunday as the Moruya Sharks outscored the Tathra Sea Eagles 52-32 to record back-to-back Group 16 victories.The Sharks blasted out of the blocks and scored at a point per minute for the first 20 minutes thanks to tries from Warren Potts, Shane Colebrook and Ken Goodsell.With most passes sticking and some slick backline moves, the Sharks looked as though they would run away with the match.However, the Sharks fell back into some bad habits and let the hosts back into the match with two quick tries to make the half-time score 20-8.Both teams went blow-for-blow after the break in what was a see-sawing affair before the visitors eventually ran out comfortable 20-point winners.Potts did the most damage on the scoreboard with a hat-trick, while Justin Bell backed up his brilliant against Bega the week before with two more tries.Captain-coach Rich-ard Bradbury, Adrian Andy and Sam Sellick-Wilson also got among the tries while five-eighth Aaron Brierley slotted six of his nine conversion attempts.It wasn’t all smooth sailing for the Sharks, though, as they had several lapses of concentration at vital moments and several handling errors put them under unnecessary pressure.But Bradbury’s men did more than enough to maintain their one-point advantage over Narooma at the top of the ladder.Dummy half Bell was again the standout for Moruya as he was solid in defence all match and controlled the attack seemingly at will.Dean Scott, Tim Weyman, Colebrook and Mitch Kennedy were also among the Sharks’ best.The win sets up Saturday’s top-of-the-table clash against Narooma nicely as the latter will be keen to retake top spot.Earlier in reserve grade, it was a similar story to the main game as the Sharks jumped out to a 16-nil lead before inviting Tathra back into the game.Leading 22-10 at half-time, Moruya continually handed back possession to the Sea Eagles and, on the wrong end of a large penalty count, never looked fully incontrol.Up 34-22 at the 65th minute, the Sharks just held on for a nervous 34-32 win.The women’s league-tag clash was a hard-fought affair with the Cobargo-Tathra team proving too experienced for the Sharkettes, scoring four tries to one for a 20-4 victory.Despite the loss, coach Ash Bettridge remained upbeat and was pleased with the structure her players are starting to implement.Elli Gladwin, Louisa Bonner and Naomi Place were the best for Moruya.This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on 苏州美甲培训学校.
