Although well aware of the difficult task that awaited the side, the Sharks travelled to Kogarah to take on the third-placed Dragons at the Jubilee Oval.
Playing for the Monty Porter Foundation Cup, the Sharks got off to a positive start when Valentine Holmes planted down for his eighth try of the season.
The highlights were few and far between thereafter, as the hosts took control of the match and made their premiership credentials clear.
