Sharks maintain impressive form

THE South Tweed Sharks continued their good form from last week's double-header with a resounding three rink and 76-39 thumping over the star studded Helensvale team.

Neville Jenkins, who has suffered only one loss all season, continued his good form with a solid 11-shot win over former Australian player Nathan Rice.

Nigel Smith's rink also registered a good win, downing current Australian representative Anthony Keipe by nine shots while Kelvin Kerkow's rink scored a whopping 17-shot victory over Australian and state player Brett Wilkie.

The victory is a repeat of the Sharks' win over Helensvale in teh 2008 Pennant final but Kerkow refused to get too excited.

“We are not getting carried away with this victory as we know Helensvale have a wealth of talent and will bounce back with vengeance but it does provide our team with a benchmark,” Kerkow said.

The result confirms the Sharks'- who take on Greenslopes this weekend - place in the top four alongside Wynnum Manly, Pine Rivers and Springwood who all had comfortable wins.

In reserve grade, Sharks slipped to fourth spot in the ladder after going down 80-72 in their top-of-the-ladder clash with leaders Helensvale.
