Sutherland Sharks take out 2010 Leader Cup


It was a good hit-out for Robbie Stanton?s men who gave an opportunity to a number of youngsters due to the senior squad?s injuries that have hit early in pre-season.
To the Sharks credit they battled and got the end result where they won 7-6 on penalties after the game finished 1-1.
It was Sutherland?s third ?Leader Cup? victory in the last three seasons against the Saints.
Stanton was happy with how his squad handled themselves against St George on the weekend.
?I felt as though the boys put in a great showing on Saturday evening but I was happy that a number of young boys were given a chance to show their worth playing senior football for the Sharks.
?I know we?ve had to contend with a few injuries early in the season but most of the players are on the mend and will be back by the first NSW Premier League match.
?The victory on Saturday was good for the fans, the club and players so hopefully we can build from there on,? Stanton stated to Football NSW.
