The Cronulla Sharks have shown signs of returning to form by thrashing the North Queensland Cowboys 46 ? 16 at Dairy Farmers Stadium.
The Cowboys started strongly in defense for the first 10 minutes, but it was only a matter of time untill the flood gates opened. The Sharks forwards made metres at will, with Stevens and Nutley the stand out performers.
With the amount of go forward the Sharks had Kimmorley ran riot, with his passing and kicking game on song the Sharks raced to a 30 point half time lead. Other strong performers for the Sharks included Paul Mellor, David Peachey and Matthew Johns.
The Cowboys defense let them down, and dropped balls in their own half and when on the attack squashed any chance they had coming into this game.
