The Jersey Flegg Sharks have scored a late try to secure a 22-all draw with the Sydney Roosters in their round 11 match played as a part of the NSWRL's Magic Round at Belmore Sports Ground.
After a two week break the undefeated Sharks started well with an early try, went to half time with the scores locked up at 10-all, then after surrendering the lead in the second period, a converted try in the final 10 minutes of the match saw them escape with the one competition point.
While still unbeaten through the 11 rounds, now with two draws to go with their six wins and a bye, the under-20 Sharks slipped to second position on the Flegg ladder behind the Newcastle Knight on for-and-against.
The early try came in the ninth minute courtesy of fullback Luke Polselli, converted by Braydon Trindall and the Sharks led 6-0.
The Roosters would respond with two four pointers, both scored by Fletcher Baker and when Sean O'Sullivan added the extras on the second try, the Sharks trailed 10-6.
Winger Jackson Ferris would score the first of his to tries to send the teams to the break tied at 10-all and after the Roosters had gone back on top with their third try of the afternoon, it would be Ferris to cross 15-minutes into the second half, and when converted by Trindall the scores were level once again.
In a game where neither side was able to assert any real dominance, the Roosters went ahead 22-16, only for the Sharks to bounce back with the 70th minute reply, scored by Blake Manowski, Trindall slotting the conversion, and the teams would be forced to share the points.
Jackson Ferris 2, Blake Manowski, Luke Polselli tries, Braydon Trindall 3 goals
