Cronulla Sharks V Knights

The Sharks ran away with this game, a fitting tribute for Luke Lewis last home game. Valentine Holmes surpasses his own record for tries scored in a season. The game started with mistakes on both sides a prime example coming from the Knights not finding touch off a penalty and the Sharks blowing great position with a mistake in the ruck in front of the posts.

A line break by Holmes, almost leads to a try but when the Knights hold a Sharks player back a penalty is given, kicked by Holmes

Wade Graham kicked the ball out on the fall giving Knights good field position. A comedy of errors for both sides making for a clunky affair.

Luke Lewis came oh so close to scoring a try in his last game at home.  Minutes later Josh Dugan runs around the Knights off an odd Townsend pass and unusual block play. Two Knights with a bad head clash adding injury to insult. Converted by Holmes

Sosaia Feki cleans up the ball in his in goal and works it out in no space. As they approach halfway  Wade Graham got cleaned up by Matautia coughing up the ball and inviting the Knights. A grubber from Pearce, rebounds off Flanigan and Meaney scoops it up for a Try. Converted by Ken Sio

Edric Lee is held up over the line. The Sharks get a penalty and they maintain the attack. Guerra gets sent to the Sin Bin three mins before half time. Intercept from a weird pass from Segeyaro straight to Mitch Barnett from the Knights. Not long after the Sharks found themselves back on the Knights line for Edric Lee to stroll over untouched from a looping Townsend pass. Holmes converts from the sideline to take it to 14-6 at half time.

A perfectly timed pass from Holmes to Sosoai Feki as they ran down the sideline off a long sweeping play from the Sharks allows Feki to score in the corner. Converted by Holmes

Daniel Saifiti scored under the sticks from a great offload from King, converted by Ken Sio. The Knights confidence boosted until Wade Graham charged down the ball to fall on the ball. Almost straight after Holmes slices his way through and put his foot down from a pass from Townsend leaving Meaney grabbing at thin air. Holmes converts his own try to become the first Shark to get 20 tries in one season.

Coming close to full time, a pin point bomb from Graham gave Dugan enough time to pat the ball to himself then back to Edric Lee to score in the corner. Holmes form brilliant converting from the sideline.

An amazing dash from Sosaia and a beautiful banana kick from the sideline lands perfectly in Townsends hands to score under the sticks. Converted by Edric Lee as his last game in the shire.
Luke Lewis on the last few minutes to make his final home game an awesome one.
