It was a disappointing result for the Sharks, with the competition-leading Panthers proving far too good in a 38-12 victory in the round 15 clash.
As was the case when the teams met earlier in the season, the Panthers started fast, had the Sharks on the back foot and kept the pressure on throughout, leaving the Cronulla side with some work to do before facing the Cowboys next weekend.
However despite the loss, and while things didn't go their way, the Sharks had a number of wholehearted performers on the night.
So who did you think was the Sharks best on the night?
Was it Josh Dugan, who again gave his all in the beaten effort, running for a team-high 182 metres. Or Sione Katoa, the competitions leading try scorer didn't manage a try, but as always his work rate was high with 16 runs in the match.
Maybe Aaron Woods, leading the charge in the middle of the field with 32 tackles and 16 carries of the football. Perhaps Toby Rudolf who tackled himself to a standstill with 40 tackles in his 54 minutes of game time.
