Shaw Cross see off Marlins

Despite trailing 10-4 at half-time, Shaw Cross managed to beat Milford 30-10 thanks to five second-half tries.

Sharks winger Jack Gledhill opened the scoring after just six minutes with a try in the corner, before Milford hit back with two tries from James Barker and Josh Nathaniel and a goal from Ryan Oxtoby.

It was a different story in the second half as the Sharks’ forwards took control and rattled in three tries in 10 minutes which stunned the visitors.

It began when James Davies plunged over the line for the first, which Danny Flowers goaled to level the scores at 10-10.

Within minutes, Sharks wingers Gledhill and Ross Roebuck raced through for further tries on the flanks to make it 18-10 and Milford had no answers to stem the Sharks’ raids.

Strong forward play, both in attack and defence from Ben Gledhill, Greg Wilby, Matthew Byatt and John Rourke snuffed out the Marlins, as the home side continued to dominate play with further tries from centre Robbie Byatt and stand-off half Andy Fawkes to give them a well-deserved win.

Shaw Cross play at home again tomorrow (Sat 2.30pm) as they take on Crosfields.
