NYC PREVIEW | Sharks v Dragons

NYC PREVIEW | Sharks v Dragons

The Sharks NYC side returns to Southern Cross Group Stadium on Sunday to tackle the Dragons, having kick-started their season with a win against the Cowboys last Saturday.

In what was Coach John Morris’ first competition game at the helm, his chargers impressed by defeating the North Queensland side, running out 30 points to 16 victors at 1300Smiles Stadium.

Jaimin Joliffe, Jayden Walker and Leon Tupuola were amongst the best for the Sharks in the win in North Queensland, with Morris certain to be looking for more of the same from his three experienced forwards on Sunday afternoon.

Ever the professional though Morris wasn’t looking too far ahead after the win, and while impressed with his sides efforts away from home, he knows that Sunday’s match versus the Dragons will be another hard-fought affair.

The Sharks 20s met the Dragons in a trial match in January, with the St George Illawarra side proving a touch too good for Morris’ men on that occasion.

Reports out of the Sharks camp in the wake of the trial defeat suggested that the side hung tough for large parts of the match, impressing at stages as the squad of more than 35 players were rotated at the game’s intervals.

The Dragons meanwhile will take to Southern Cross Group Stadium on the back of a first-up loss at the hands of the Storm in Melbourne.

The Sharks v Dragons NYC game will be the first match on Sunday afternoon, with a scheduled start time of 1.45pm.
