Sharks win as crowds turn out for injured Glynn

MORE THAN 650 people turned out to pay tribute to recovering Sharks star Ryan Glynn – and his side delivered a superb performance to move clear at the Division Two summit with a 32-20 win over Stanningley

With Glynn in hospital having  sustained a serious spinal injury at Elland last time out, the inspired hosts got to work inside five minutes.

Having talked of doing it ‘#forglynny’ on Twitter prior to kick off, Shaw Cross moved into a 14-point lead at the break.

Shaun Squires led the way with a hat-trick, his first of which came early in the piece as he added the extras.

Josh Roberts replied for the visitors shortly after, before Squires grabbed his second.

Liam Chadwick posted a second Stanningley response, though tries courtesy of Phil Wood and Chris Walker sealed victory before the break.

A Dean Parker double made for a tense climax, however, though late touchdowns by Josh Rymer and Squires were enough to see Shaw Cross home to a memorable triumph.
