Dragons Back on the Winners List
However the Sharks defence was stoic, and while the Dragons led early, the Sharks hung close with a 6-4 scorline indicative of the contest. However a Brett Morris runaway try gave the Dragons some breathing space at Half-time 12-4.
The second half was gripping edge of the seat football, with the Sharks scoring in the 53rd minute, giving the game even more grip and even more edge of the seat stuff 12-10.Trent Merrin gave the Dragons some buffer scoring off a Hornby pass, and the Dragons held the 18-10 scoreline with many heart flutters for the fans of both sides.
The Dragons attacked with abandon yet still could only put on 18 points against a great defensive effort from the Sharks. The win kept the Dragons in touch with the 8, while the Sharks cemented their reputation as a potential top 4 side.
