Sharks miss out on third round Oxford tie

SHAW CROSS SHARKS were heavily beat 40-6 at home in the second round of the 2016 Challenge Cup to a strong-looking Lock Lane.

The Sharks were up against it from the first whistle against clinical opponents.

Lewis Price scored two first half tries along with touchdown’s from Craig Jones, Mikey Hayward and Danny Rowse, who was also accurate with the boot all game, to give the away side a 24-0 advantage at the break.

Shaw Cross improved in the second half and they were rewarded for their efforts with a try from James Davies. Will Poching added the extras.

But it was too little too late for the home side and the visitors were not taking any prisoners.

They added to their tally with a further three second half touchdowns.

Chris Siddons and Karl Robinson went over either side of Hayward’s second.

It was a day to forget for Shaw Cross as they miss out on an away tie at League One outfit Oxford.
