Survival still not secure for struggling sharks

SHAW CROSS SHARKS have still not secured National Conference League Division One survival following a 22-12 defeat away at fellow strugglers East Leeds.

The home side led 10-0 following a Jordan Normington try on five minutes.

Three minutes from the break Ryan Gaunt added another as Nathan Conroy landed the conversion.

But back came Shaw Cross Sharks.

Matthew Tubb went in for a try as Danny Flowers added the conversion, the feat being repeated 10 minutes into the second half.

Despite having Ben Walkin (professional foul) and Shaun Ward (high tackle) sin-binned, the home side went on to win the game.

Mark Greenwood and Normington went in for tries.

Sharks hope to respond positively to the setback when they make a trip to second-placed Myton Warriors tomorrow (Sat Oct 1).
