Better late than never
Apologies as we neglected to provide the answers to our Monday trivia questions regarding first try scorers in a couple of significant games from the history of the Sharks.
The first-ever Sharks try scorer in a trial, which was in a game played during the 1967 pre-season, was former referee and Ex-Shark – Jack Danzey
The first try in a premiership match, also in 1967 – John ‘Bomber’ Hynes.
And the first Super League try scorer for the Sharks in 1997 – Andrew Ettingshausen
Finally, a little more recently, the first try scorer in the Sharks trial match against Manly two weeks ago - Leonardi Feiloakitau-Fetuani – with Leonardi a Newtown Jets contracted player who ran out for the Sharks in the first half of our Manly trial.
We will give half a point for Jacob Gagan who was the first Sharks contracted player to score in that match.
