Noddy kicked up a frenzy, Dykesy warmed to his old home ground and Luke Covell gave the fans plenty to cheer about with his goal kicking boot. It was a Saturday night of old at Toyota Park, as the Sharks somehow gritted out a win against their more favoured opponents, Penrith.
There were fireworks, there were dancing girls, a live band and nineteen thousand screaming fans to witness the unlikely victory.
But who gets the points? And who will find themselves punted from Sharks Den Survivor after that fine performance?
Player of the Year Points 3. Adam Dykes - Cunning in attack, setting up the two tries that sealed the game. Worked a gem alongside Kimmorley. 2. Wasn't as flashy as his prop forward partner, Hutch Maiava, but worked hard all night and set the platform for success. 1. Brett Kimmorley - Pinpoint kicking troubled the Panthers all evening.
Sharks Den Survivor
For those who are new visitors, or have simply forgotten, Sharks Den Survivor is a weekly poll in which the weakest player is voted out of the game; after twenty four games, only one player remains - the Sharks Den Survivor.
You can vote players out on any basis you see fit - if you think they played worse than any other player, if they simply didn't take the field, or if you just don't like them very much. Often, when the team wins, a player from the lower grades will be punted. Other weeks, when the first grade team puts in a dismal performance, the brunt of people's votes will come down on one unlucky first grader.
