After two months away from home the Sharks were welcomed back with a sell-out crowd and skipper Mike Tuck made his return from a hand injury.

Building on last weekend’s surprise win over London City Royals, the Sharks were commanding throughout the night.

A stunning first quarter saw them lead 28-9 before stretching the advantage to 51-26 by half time.
