It was a long time coming and it turned out to be a long way to run for him to get it, however Gerard Beale managed to notch his first try as a Shark in the win over the Cowboys last night. 

Beale collected a Johnathan Thurston cross-field kick and dashed 95-metres to score, giving his team some breathing space as they hung on to record a win that has them firmly in the frame for a top four berth come finals time. 

Understandably it was an extemely satisfied and happy Beale who spoke with Sharks TV straight after the game. 

See what he had to say, with his interview now playing on Sharks TV.
