MATCH REPORT | SG Ball
Showing no ill effects from their excursion to Perth the previous week, the SG Ball Sharks have continued on their winning ways with a dominating 66-4 win over the Wests Magpies.
The Sharks were well in control but lacking in concentration and discipline as they went to half time 18-0 in front but in an impressive attacking display put their opponents to the sword in the second period in running away with the result.
After a 74-12 win in week one over the West Coast Pirates in Perth the under-18 Sharks have begun the 2016 defense of their state and national titles in the best possible manner.
The match began in perfect fashion for the Sharks when Kyle Flanagan sliced through with his teams first possession of the football and when the young half back converted his own try it was 6-0 Sharks.
Two Blayke Brailey tries, both from dummy half had the Sharks up 18-0, but the visiting Cronulla side failed to capitalize on numerous opportunities in the remainder of the first half.
After a few stern words of wisdom from coach Dave Howlett at the break it was a much more focused Sharks side after the break and the Magpies had no answer to the flowing ball movement of the young Cronulla team.
Brailey added two more tries to make his tally four for the match, with six other Sharks putting their name in the score sheet in the second 30 minutes of the match.
Flanagan, backing up his effort of 12 goals from 13 last weekend was perfect with the boot, kicking 11 goals from as many attempts.
Like their Matthews Cup counterpart the Sharks have racked up an impressive pints total in two weeks however their assignment is set to become more difficult when they face the Penrith Panthers in a match to be played in Windsor next Saturday.
