After consecutive two point losses the NSW Cup Sharks have returned to the winners circle with a solid 38-16 victory over the Wyong Roos.

Down on troops for the match played at Morrie Breen Oval on the Central Coast the Sharks battled hard in the first 40 minutes before gaining the upper hand after the break and running away with the contest.

Ahead just 12-4 at half time, the Sharks on the back of strong games from hooker Pat Politoni, fullback Nathan Gardner and Storm front rower Junior Moors, scored five more tries in the second stanza in recording their six win in 11 starts this season.

Also strong for the Sharks in the win was winger Nathan Stapleton who crossed for two tries and kicked five goals for a personal points tally of 18 points, while PNG prop Mark Mexico crashed into the opposition forward pack with his usual vigor in another physical performance.

With the win the Sharks remain in seventh position, just two points outside the top four and three ahead of the ninth-placed Newtown Jets.
