It would have been easy for Sharks coach Shane Flanagan to blame the long list of injured players missing from his team on Saturday night as a reason for the heavy defeat to the Sydney Roosters.
Without up to eight of their NRL regulars the Sharks were outplayed and outclassed by the Roosters, however Flanagan at the post-match press conference refused to use that as a reason.
He conceded the Sharks performance was far from good enough and with only one or two of the injured brigade due back next week, his team will need to be much better on Sunday against the Panthers.
Flanagan was joined by captain on the day Todd Carney at the media conference. See what the pair had to say, now playing on Sharks TV
