Sharks beat Panthers despite last minute scare

Sharks 26 defeat Panthers 22

It looks like Matt Moylan has won the battle of the swapped players this time round when he helped his Sharks defeat his old side Panthers 26-22 at Southern Cross Group stadium to close out round 7 of the NRL on Sunday afternoon.

Sharks opened the scoring with Valentine Holmes pouncing on a Josh Dugan kick in the in-goal.
Hooker Jayden Brailey looked to have scored his sides 2nd Try of the night but it was reviewed and given a No Try.

The away side got on the score board and evened it up when Dallin Watene-Zelezniak scored in the corner and ex-Shark Maloney converted putting his side ahead 6-4.

Bench player Scott Sorensen was next to score for the home side putting his side up 10-6 and the Sharks carried that lead into half-time.

Centre Jesse Ramien scored pretty soon after the break and the Sharks looked to be in control with a handy 16-6 lead. Which was again added to by a Chad Townsend Penalty Goal and the Sharks were up by 2 converted tries.

The panthers started to claw back when Sione Katoa was injected into the game and Dylan Edwards pounced on a nicely placed Katoa kick.

Ramien scored a second try with Townsend converting and Sharks again had a 12 point lead with 13 to go.

Townsend slotted another penalty goal and the Sharks looked to have a comfortable 14 point gap.

But as is the theme of Penrith this season they started to mount a comeback with 2 quick fire tries in the last 5 minutes but it the comeback wasn’t to be win Chad Townsend diving on a loose ball after the siren had sounded.
