A rather vocal crowd at Campbelltown Stadium, especially concerning ref Shayne Hayne, have seen the home side go down against the Sharks by 34-18.
The Sharks looked as though they were going to carry on where they left off last week, with an early try. But a committed Tigers side soon put the brakes on scoring two quick tries. The Sharks hit back with two tries of their own, including the Franze try in the photo, to lead at the break by 18-12.
Both teams were determined in the game, but the class of the Sharks started to show through in the second half, and the difference in the score quickly widened.
An exciting game to the end, with the Tigers never say die attitude.
Kimmorley set a new club record with 215 points in a season, and he hasn't stopped yet. The Sharks now have 10 games in a row.
