Back to where we need to be: Flanagan

The in against the North Queensland Cowboys was a step in the right direction.

And Sharks coach Shane Flanagan knows it.

Despite not scoring a try in the second half, the Sharks coach believes that his side are moving to where they want to be coming into the final two rounds of the 2017 season.

“We’ll get better in the weeks to come,” said Flanagan.

“Today (Round 24) was definitely a step in the right direction. We got 40 good minutes there and we had a couple of changes there too.

The changes Flanagan was referring too were the slight strain to Wade Graham’s calf along with the return of young hooker Jayden Brailey.

These two players will be crucial to the Sharks’ chances in Saturday’s clash against the Sydney Roosters at Southern Cross Group Stadium.

“Wade Graham had a bit of a tight calf and Jayden Brailey’s first game back for us, I thought he was real (sic) good in the first half.”

Overall, Shane Flanagan knows that his side must be much better however with the Finals Series just around the corner, he believes that his side are on the right path to success in 2017.

“We’re getting back to where we need to be and I think it was a really good start for us.

“Like I said, 40 minutes of pretty good footy and two points against North Queensland up here no matter what time of the year are real valuable.”
