The Sharks were second in the overall series table just six points behind Tynedale, and knew anything but a win would hand Tynedale the series win.
The day didn't get off to the best starts, with their first match kicking off 30mins earlier than first arranged they took to the field with just 5 players as they faced Pontleland in the opening game. Pontleland made the most of their two man advantage and scored after 3mins to take the lead. Just before half-time the rest of the players arrived and the Sharks were at full strength and managed to score to go into the break 7-5 up. Two more tries in the second half saw them secure a scrappy win.
