A beautiful day, a packed ground, and the home team on fire. The Sharks demolish the Knights by 64 - 14
What was anticipated to be a close encounter, turned into a feeding frenzy by the Sharks. Kimmorley (pictured), involved in almost every play, had a very good game, helping set up a lot of the Sharks tries, and bagging a couple himself. The Knights looked totally lost on attack, and had no real answers for the waves of attack set upon them by the Sharks.
Half time score was an almost unbelievable 42-0 to the Sharks
Three tries in the second half to the Knights, were no match for the Sharks who did not let up for the whole 80 minutes. 11 tries to the Sharks in the game, and every one was a beauty.
Johns has managed to score 200 points so far this season, the 3rd year in a row he has done so.
Another record, Kimmorley now is the highest point scorer in a game, for the Sharks, netting 28 points today.
