FAN POLL | Round 2 Man of the Match

After each round of the 2019 season we'll be asking Sharks fans who they thought was the best on field.

At the end of the year we'll be crowning the 'Player of the Year' as voted by you, the fans!

In what was certainly a game of two halves, the Sharks ultimately walked away with the two competition points thanks to a solid first half performance.

The Sharks right hand side was lethal in the opening period with four tries, in virtually the same spot, helping them to open up a commanding 20-0 lead before the break.

The second half however wouldn't go according to plan, with the Sharks still creating opportunities, only for the last pass to go astray as they repeatedly let their opponents off the hook.

It was an afternoon to remember for winger Sione Katoa, although he had a couple of handling errors, he ran ran for 209 metres with 3 line breaks, 8 tackle breaks and 2 tries.

Coming on a little earlier than probably expected due to his brother's HIA, Blayke Brailey stood solid in defence, notching up the most tackles of any Shark with 38 tackles.

In just his second game, with a tackle efficiency rating of 92.7%, Blayke certainly showed he is more than capable of handling himself in the NRL.

Shaun Johnson got his hands on the ball and more involved this week, running for 115 metres, making 5 tackle breaks, 2 line break assists and a try assist. He also kicked for 300 metres.

And the man voted by you as the Round 1 Man of the Match, Briton Nikora, backed up his first performance with yet another big game, he got his first try in the NRL running a beautiful line, made 126 metres, 2 line breaks, 3 tackle breaks and 33 tackles. 

But what we think is irrelevant, what we really want to hear is what our fans have to say!
