Another windy day in Sydney, and the Sharks have made good use of it to down the Warriors 36-24, their first loss this year in Australia.
In the first, the Warriors had the wind behind them but did not seem to want to use the advantage.
The tries freely came to both sides in a fast, action packed game. The often solid defence from the Warriors seemed to be lacking today, and the Sharks made full use of side stepping the big forwards, often to score.
At half time, the Sharks had the lead by 26-18
The Warriors, scoring early in the second half, looked to be making a comeback, but the Sharks had other ideas. Peachey, having a brilliant game, was running at will, and deserved the two tries he scored.
The Sharks wanted to win this game, and win it they did with style.
