Bull Sharks complete a clean sweep against Norths

The Colts got the party started early in the morning and it didn't stop for the entire day as all sixes sides secured wins on a Super Saturday for the club.  

Colts 1

Bull Sharks win 40-38

Where it was won: 

We built this win off the counterattack from our back three. We scored some great tries between our wingers Rocco Gollings and Hunter Robinson. And full back Trey Alatini created a number of tries with great decision making. We identified that Norths would kick poorly and two score a couple tries off their kicking broke them. 

The highlight:

Hunter Robinson’s try from counterattack. It was a 70m play from the back three that saw Hunter race away down the left flank. 

What made you happy: 

It was our overall team effort. Our set piece was a big work on from the Wests game and to lose only one line out was a massive improvement. The scrum was also solid once again. 

Bull Sharks Football:

We really wanted to score some points this week and have that attacking mindset that looks for scoring opportunities in every situation. To get 40 points was great and we probably left a few out there. 

The work to do:

We need to give more attacking support at the breakdown.  

Trademark Player:

Hunter Robinson played in the manner we asked him. His attacking mindset consistently allowed him to put his wingers into dangerous positions.

Colts 2 

Bull Sharks win 30-20 

Premier Women  

Shannon Symon

Bull Sharks win 68-0 

Where it was won:

It was definitely our control of the ball on attack. We are shifting well to the edge and developing a nice attacking balance. Our game managers in the middle Cobie Jane Morgan, Ariana Hira and Mel Wilks really solidify our attack and have the skill level to execute.

The highlight:

A counterattack play that passed through almost all every set of hands on the way to a score out wide. 

What made you happy:        

Our defence from the team, I challenge the girls to keep opposition to zero, long may it continue.

The work to do:

We want to see improvement in the set piece. It is an area we traditionally haven't been strong in, so that's our focus over the coming weeks.

Trademark Player:

This week it was Mel Wilks. We’ve asked Mel to challenge herself and work on different parts of her game and she has responded as we knew she would. She is hard-working, has a great attitude and will do anything for her team.

Bull Sharks win 19-12 

Where it was won:

We had the luxury of being able to bring two Reds props off the bench which ensured we had scrum dominance throughout the game. Our first two tries were finished by our backline after solid scrums anchored by Rhys Sheriff and Levi Samuela and we were able to continue the dominance up front when we were able to bring George Blake and Wallaby World Cup prop Zane Nonggorr off the bench.

The highlight:

Our third try early in the second half was the result of some slick passing interchanges between forwards and backs. Tyler Campbell was prominent in the movement and Joel Brown finished it off by taking an inside ball from Rhian Stowers. Rhian was a constant threat and also showcased his kicking game with some booming left foot kicks to move us down the field.

What made me happy:

Our defence showed definite improvement with Norths unable to crack us despite at times having long passages of play camped inside our 22.

Trademark player:

Our skipper Tyler Campbell had an exceptional all-round game. He worked through nine carries, laid 16 tackles and made 10 passes to go with a first half try.

The work to do: 

Our obvious area for improvement is our lineout. It continues to underperform which puts us under unnecessary pressure.
