Sharks captain reflects on first win as the side prepare for Milford Marlins

Shaw Cross Sharks captain Danny Flowers believes that the 46-10 win over Blackbrook last Saturday will instil more confidence into the side as they face Milford Marlins tomorrow afternoon.

The Sharks were edged by two points in their opening two games and Flowers believes that the performance against Blackbrook was something that had been
coming after two narrow losses.

“It was a great team performance, things had been coming as we looked really good in patches but we had not been able to put it all together,” said Flowers.

“Against Blackbrook we completed well, everything came off all of our offloads worked, it is enjoyable when you play well together and everything you do comes together.”

Shaw Cross lost their opening three games last season and even though they have lost twice this season Flowers says that confidence is high in the team after three good performances.

“The first two games were tough games, we should’ve taken a point off Hunslet Parkside who potentially are going to be top of the table at the end of the season.

“We were unlucky against Underbank as well, we have been there or thereabouts in all of our games, we might’ve twice but we have performed really well and that showed against Blackbrook.

“Everyone is playing well and there is a fantastic feeling about the club, especially with getting the points away to Blackbrook.”

Milford have won three of the last four meetings against Shaw Cross, however Flowers feels that the struggles of last season have been forgotten as Sharks look to make it two league wins in a row.

“Even though we lost two games prior to Blackbrook confidence was still high, and after the win last week the confidence is something we can take into the next few weeks.”

Tomorrow’s game kicks off at 2:30pm at Leeds Road and is the first of two home games on the bounce with Normanton Knights visiting on 8th April.

Head coach Brett Turner has also named his squad for tomorrow’s game:

Sam Ottewell
