In his first game 'officially' in charge of the Sharks after being anointed as head coach for the remainder of the 2014 season, James Shepherd was a satisfied coach after his teams win over the Panthers in Bathurst.

At the post-match press conference Shepherd praised the team for their efforts and the senior players for their help in preparing the team which came away with a strong victory against a quality opponent.
