Flegg Sharks suffer heavy loss to Raiders

A depleted Jersey Flegg Sharks side endured a tough Sunday afternoon in a 30-4 defeat to the ladder-leading Raiders at PointsBet Stadium.

In the curtain-raiser to the NRL match between the same teams, Cronulla's under-21s - who were missing several players including strike centre Michael Gabrael -  conceded three tries in the opening 20 minutes and never recovered.

While Canberra were lethal, using the speed of their outside backs to devastating effect, the Sharks didn't help themselves by making a series of ill-timed errors.

The Raiders skipped to a commanding 22-0 lead at halftime, with impressive centre Regan Carr claiming the first two tries.

Mitch Henderson and Jalen Afamasaga added their names to the scoresheet for the Green Machine, leaving the Sharks needing to come out firing after the break.

Unfortunately, it was one-way traffic when play resumed as the Raiders extended their advantage with another Henderson four-pointer and penalty goal.

The Sharks avoided a shutout when winger Talanoa Penitani accepted a long ball and touched down in the corner in the 63rd minute.

Now with a 1-3 record, Cronulla head to Fiji next weekend to face the Kaiviti Silktails as they look rebound from three straight losses.
