    Better 2nd half but the scoreline looks beyond a joke, I will give the boys time to settle in over the next few weeks & hope they can come to turns with the pace of the game after all we did have 10 players making their debuts today & the Sharks had 2..

    Tigers were terrible yesterday so next week may be a little better

    Sharks.com.au: NYC match report - Round 1

    In a sparkling attacking performance the NYC Sharks have kicked off their 2014 season with a 50-22 thumping of the Gold Coast Titans at Remondis Stadium.

    In a lopsided first half the Sharks raced to a 40-0 lead and while new coach David Howlett wouldn’t have been thrilled to leak 22 second half points it was still a win all concerned would be satisfied with.

    It took less than two minutes for the Sharks to put first points on the board when Josh Addo-Carr finished off a slick backline move and from there the remainder of the first half was somewhat of a procession.

    Valentine Holmes was next to score the first of three tries he would score on the night, then in quick succession Jaden Clarke and Dallas Wells and had crossed and with Holmes on target with is goal kicking the Sharks had scored 22 points in even time.

    Fa’amanu Brown went over, exploiting some soft Godl Coast defense and after Holmes, then Addo-Carr went over for their second tries it was 40-0 at half time and the result was already beyond doubt despite the fact the match had 40 minutes remaining.

    Somewhat understandably with such a large advantage the Sharks took their foot off the pedal in the early moments of the second period and three Gold Coast tries in the first 20 minutes of the half had the score-line at 40-6 but order was restored with a couple of more Sharks tries, one to Holmes, the other to Brown, rounding out the scoring.

    The Sharks had a host of good players on the night, with Holmes dangerous at the back, Brown controlling proceedings at the back, with Zane Walford and Patrice Siolo damaging with the football in their hands on the edge of the ruck.

    Overall is was a strong performance for up from the Sharks who will hope to build on that result in the weeks ahead.

    Titans NYC Match Report

    The iSelect Titans’ under-20 Holden Cup side did not have the season start new coach Ben Woolf would have liked, going down to the Cronulla Sharks 50-22 at Remondis Stadium in Sydney.

    They were on the back foot from the opening minute, conceding a try after 90 seconds down the Sharks’ far left, where a lot of Cronulla’s early play was aimed. The home teams’ scoring parade unfortunately continued for the rest of the first half, with the Sharks leading 4-0 after halt-time after scoring eight tries.

    But the young Titans showed plenty of grit in the second half, toughening up in defence and putting on three tries in the first 20 minutes, two scored by winger Brian Kelly and another by lock Parahi Wilson.

    That brought the score back to 44-16 with 18 minutes remaining and the coach would have been satisfied with the more physical approach to defence and commitment.

    To win the second half 22-10 was a good effort considering how easily the Titans’ line was broken in the first half. At one stage the Titans had scored 22-4 in the first 33 minutes of the second half with two tries to lock Parahi Wilson, who put in a whole-hearted effort all night.

    Winger Brian Kelly also scored two tries, but with five minutes remaining very classy Sharks fullback Valentine Holmes scored under the posts and converted, giving him a haul of 26 points from three tries and seven goals.

    This is a young side with few players having had Holden Cup experience and they will certainly improve from the experience, especially having to travel to Sydney on a Monday for what was several players’ first game in the competition.

    CRONULLA 50 (V. Holmes 3, J. Adda-Carr 2, F. Brown 2, J. Clarke, D. Wells; Holmes 7 goals) beat GOLD COAST iSELECT TITANS 22 (P. Wilson 2, B. Kelly 2 tries; S. Harold 2, C. Broadhurst goals) at Remondis Stadium.
