    Cronulla Sharks v Sydney Roosters

    Date
    Sort posts by:

    The Roosters have won their first match in four games, with a gritty 24-18 win over the Sharks. Boyd Cordner's destructive running and Shaun Kenny-Dowall's fleet-footed attacking game stood out for the Tricolours, but in the end, Mitchell Pearce's cool kicking got them home. For the Sharks, returning skipper Paul Gallen was inspirational and Wade Graham put in a powerful performance up front. Cronulla will feel gutted - they kept up with the Premiers until the last minutes - but in the end, the Roosters deserved to take home the two points. The crowd was 12,163.

    Sharks 18 Roosters 24

    79th minute:

    Cronulla's last play ends with a lame kick downfield. Game over, folks. 

    Sharks 18 Roosters 24

    77th minute:

    Roosters score out wide off a bobbing bomb but Kenny-Dowall is called offside and the Sharks get a penalty.

    Sharks 18 Roosters 24

    74th minute:

    Carney attempts a chip and regather 30m out but Minichiello, showing the coolest hands in the business, scoops up the synthetic pigskin and scoots out of danger. Great stuff from the veteran.

    Sharks 18 Roosters 24

    71st minute:

    Easts hit back. From a haunting Pearce bomb, the scraps are cleaned up by Jennings, who finds Kenny-Dowall in space on the left flank. Great try Roosters. Maloney converts. Eight minutes to go.

    Sharks 18 Roosters 24

    67th minute:

    A quick 20m tap from Jonathan Wright caught the Roosters unaware as the ball found Feki in hyper speed mode scooting down the left flank. Conversion successful. Up goes the chant: "Sharkies, Sharkies..."

    Sharks 18 Roosters 18

    65th minute:

    Kenny-Dowall has run a phenomenal 260m tonight. He picked up the ball from the restart and brushed away Jonathan Wright like he was an annoying fly. 

    Sharks 12 Roosters 18

    61st minute:

    Kenny-Dowall ran 95m to score after catching a Carney bomb that floated tantalisingly over Blake Ayshford's outstretched fingertips. Maloney converts. 

    Sharks 12 Roosters 18

    57th minute:

    Powerhouse running from Kenny-Dowall was let down by a terrible pass which found Cronulla's Jonathan Wright, who, from broken play jinked and jagged 40m towards the Roosters' line. Both teams are still going hard. Ferocious stuff. 

    Sharks 12 Roosters 12

    54th minute:

    The Roosters march 63m in the hand in their next set but a poor Pearce bomb undoes all the good work.

    Sharks 12 Roosters 12

    52nd minute:

    Crucial error. Minichiello's boot stuffs up the play the ball and the pill rolls forward. Sharks attack 40m out.

    Sharks 12 Roosters 12

    49th minute:

    Roosters go close. SBW stripped Michael Gordon in a one-on-one but lost the ball forward as he lurched for the line.

    Sharks 12 Roosters 12

    46th minute:

    It's end to end stuff as Maloney's grubber is cleaned up by Gordon with Danny Mortimer hovering.

    Sharks 12 Roosters 12

    43rd minute:

    Cronulla show they're up for the fight. After a bulldozing run, Wade Graham spun around in the tackle and smashed the ball over the stripe. The move had started with Paul Gallen's smart run down the blind side. Gordon collect the extras. 

    Sharks 12 Roosters 12

    42nd minute:

    Sharks 6 Roosters 12

     

    The Gallen factor. How long can the Sharks' inspirational captain keep it up. The human battering ram has kept the black, white and blue in the game with blockbusting runs and wall-like defence. The Sharks are a different team with him on the pitch - but Boyd Cordner, SBW and Tuivasa-Shek are threatening whenever they have the ball and Cronulla will have to be at their best to hold them out. Cordner is the complete running forward; if he gets more involved, the Roosters will win and win well. The second half will be a corker. Back in five.

    Sharks 6 Roosters 12

    36th minute:

    Cronulla's defence is holding out, but there's a feeling that if the Tricolours score again the flood gates could happen.

    Sharks 6 Roosters 12

    33rd minute:

    Roosters fight back. Cordner, SBW and Tuivasa-Sheck are electric at the moment. Four and five Sharks are required to stick them on their backsides, which means there are holes in the rest of the Cronulla line.

    Sharks 6 Roosters 12

     

    30th minute:

    Sharks enjoying a period of dominance as Gallen's ferocious charges put the Roosters on the back foot.

    Sharks 6 Roosters 12

    26th minute:

    Sharks go close. Wright intercepted the ball 10m from his own line but didn't have the pace, or it seemed, the confidence, to outrun the Roosters' defence - but he did set up an attack 20m out from the Triclours line, which culminated in an ineffective Robson grubber.

    Sharks 6 Roosters 12

    22nd minute:

    After picking up a messy grubber from Carney, Tuivasa-Shek slalomed past half the Cronulla side to unleash Maloney - without a Shark in sight. When the try was awarded, Gallen went off his nut, complaining that Carney was held without the ball in the lead-up. Fantastic footwork from Tuivasa-Shek. Maloney converts.

    Sharks 6 Roosters 12

    20th minute:

    Just got word we have a blog follower in Hawaii. That's a long way to travel to get away from the Roosters' early season woes. Just joking. Great to have you on board.

     

    Sharks 6 Roosters 6

    19th minute:

    Boyd Cordner is one of the best runners on the edge of the ruck in the game, and once he got the ball 10m out, the Cronulla defence was roadkill. Great power try. Maloney converts.

    Sharks 6 Roosters 6

    13th minute:

    Roosters go close. Mitchell Pearce, falling backwards, threaded a miraculous grubber... and as the Sharks stood around discussing the weather, Minichiello swooped, only to ground the ball millimetres over the deadball line.

    Sharks 0 Roosters 0

    11th minute:

    Carney almost pulled off a tryscoring intercept as Pearce passed to Cordner, but the ball wouldn't stick and the newly-blond No.6 was left wondering what might have been.

    Sharks 0 Roosters 0

    9th minute:

    David and Goliath stuff. Little John Morris upends big Sam Moa and the ball dribbles all over the turf. Great stuff from the veteran.

    Sharks 0 Roosters 0

    7th minute:

    Jennings and Cordner are looking potent in attack. They're making metres at will. Definite danger signs for the Sharks.

    Sharks 0 Roosters 0

    6th minute:

    Sharks go close: Carney split the defence but his pass was awkward and the play broke down 10m out. 

    Sharks 0 Roosters 0

    4th minute:

    First penalty: Sonny Bill Williams lingered too long in the tackle. Sharks attack.

    Sharks 0 Roosters 0

    2nd minute:

    In the first six, Gallen made two barnstorming hit-ups. He's an inspirational presence, no risk.

    Sharks 0 Roosters 0

     

    There's a bit of electricity in the Sharks crowd tonight with the news Paul Gallen is definitely playing.
