Sharks Claim Regional Championships

Congratulations to Sharks M1, who have claimed the Mens Open division of the NQ Regional championships on the back of  clinical 11-6 victory over Cairns Pirates.

As the only Townsville based club to enter teams in both the Mens and Womens Open divisions of the Championships, Sharks proved they are indeed a force in the north, as both teams impressed throughout the championships - in many cases against regional representative sides.

The Womens team bowed out of the competition in the Quarter Finals - going down to a slick Cairns outfit that went on to win the championships, but more than demonstrated the development of this young side since the start of the winter season.

The Mens - whose only close game was a 10-10 draw against Cairns in the rounds, clicked up a gear when it mattered, disposing of Mackay 13-2 in the semi-final before showcasing their class in the Final; proving too strong for Cairns in their never in doubt 11-6 victory.

Congratulations to Coach Peck - who has added another impressive string to his bow in the coaching arena; and of course to all players representing Sharks at the championships. Also - a huge thanks to Telstra and Donut King for their valued championship sponsorship .. the strips look awesome!!
