Sharks Go Down In Thriller.....with the Sharkman
The Sharks Division 1 Premiership hopes are over for 2015 after they went down to the Northern Outlaws by 28-22 on Saturday night. In a see-sawing game, the Sharks were denied a grandstand finish when they scored on the siren, only to be called off side and penalised as the siren sounded. The game would have definitely gone into golden point after Jamie Irwin placed the ball under the posts but the referee called him off side and that was the end of any chance the sharks had for 2015.
Second division will play on Grand final day after defeating Mary Valley and moving to the top of pool B. The Under 18's suffered a shock loss at the hands of Kawana and will have to regroup for next weeks elimination final against Caboolture.......more to come

CALOUNDRA SHARKS WIN 9’s COMPETITION....by the Sharkman
The Caloundra Sharks have started their season on a winning note after they defeated the Nambour Crushers in the final of the 9’s competition by 16-6. Each side had to win 2 of their 4 games to progress to the finals and the Sharks and Nambour were the two standout sides.
It was no secret when both sides met again in the final but Caloundra was too fast and came away with their well deserved 16-6 victory.
The season kicks off next weekend when Caloundra takes on Gympie at Shark Park in a tough first round battle. Come on down and help the Sharks on their winning way......see you there......Sharkman
