Sharks women continue charge toward HNWP Finals

The Harvey Norman Women's Premiership Sharks have continued on their winning ways as they march on towards a place in the upcoming competition finals, the Cronulla girls scoring a 34-4 victory over the St Marys Saints. 

Against a tricky opponents, one sitting on the edge of the top five and battling to qualify for the finals in two weeks time, the Sharks were far too good, scoring six tries to one in the resounding victory. 

The Sharks also scored the win without regular number seven Maddi Studdon who was kept out the match due to rib soreness, however her replacement in Tayla Preston stepped up to mark in delivering a strong performance. 

Preston scored the Sharks second try and assuming the goal kicking duties was successful in knocking over five from six attempts. 

The Sharks didn't have it all their own way against the Saints, taking a six-nil lead in the 10th minute following a Tiana Pentani try, but their opponents were able to narrow the gap midway through the half with a four-pointer of their own. 

The Preston try and goal in the closing minutes of the half may have broken the resolve of the Saints, as the Sharks would cross the line on four more occasions after the break in recording the 30-point win. 

Leanne Tufuga continued her strong season for the Sharks in touching down for two of those four Cronulla tries. 

The Sharks now have one final mach before the HNWP finals, an away game agains the Helensburgh Tigers at Rex Jackson Oval next Saturday at 12 noon. 

The Sharks are in a three-way battle for top spot in the HNWP with the Central Coast Roosters and Mounties with one round remaining. 

Leanne Tufuga 2, Tayla Preston, Quincy Dodd, Kennedy Cherrington, Taina Penitani tries, Preston 5 goals
