12 Girls development side had 2 games today. The first game was against our A side and boy did we hold our own. Took it to them and played out of our skin. Went down 4-2. SO PROUD. Second game was a victory against sunny coast 11-3 with some awsome tries scored and some great defence also. Great day today for our girls and hoping things fall our way so we can grab a semi final berth!

Day 2 saw the sharks 14 boys rack up another 2 wins from 2 games.
First against a hard running and well coached Sunny Coast side. Boys leaked a couple of tries but they found some attacking power and came home with an 11-7 win.
Final Round game was against North Queensland and it was evident that they were finally starting to peak with a 13-6 victory. Some of the tries were beautiful to watch and the Defence in the middles were solid. If they can show what they can do and play to their full potential tomorrow, nothing should stop them!!
Let’s hope finals day they peak at the right time because if they do... look out!!
Let’s go Sharkies!!

A slow start against Swans saw them get out to an early 5 try lead. The girls regrouped well in stages for the next 30 mins ending up with a 1-8 loss. We spoke about enjoying the game by doing the little things right and going from there. A 2-5 loss against Cyclones followed but the girls brought a lot of enthusiasm to this game and played very well and it was pleasing to see them working hard and enjoying it!
