Flanagan says Sharks out to quickly bounce back

Set to prepare for a match off the back off a last-start loss for the first time in nearly five months, Sharks coach Shane Flanagan says he’s confident his side can return to winning ways this Saturday night against the Dragons.

Though last week’s five-day turn around as an excuse for the lull in the Sharks performance, Flanagan knows the team is capable of swiftly returning to the peak of their powers against the old foe.

“We tried really hard (against the Raiders), we just didn’t play smart,” Flanagan said.

“We can turn (the loss) around really quickly. You don’t win 16 in a row and lead the competition for most of the year if you don’t have a good footy team.

“We just need to go again next week.”

The Sharks return to training on Tuesday, in preparation for the Round 23 clash at Kogarah.
