The North Sydney Bears feel to the Cronulla Sharks in round 12 of the NSW Cup competition, as part of a triple header at ANZ Stadium on Saturday.


The Sharks is made up of players from the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks and Melbourne Storm squads, and they were never headed throughout the 80 minutes of the match.


The first half was a try-fest, with the Sharks out-scoring the Bears four-tries-to-three in the first 40 minutes, and the Sharks sealed the win with the only try of the second half which came in the 66th minute of the match.


The Sharks led 10-nil early courtesy of tries to Daniel Moroko and Mark Taufua, before the Bears scored their first try through fullback Kieran Vale in the 11th minute.


Cronulla extended their lead when Young Tonumaipea scored shortly afterwards, then the Bears clawed their way back through a try to five-eighth Dylan Farrell.


Moroko scored his second before big Tom Burgess scored a rampaging try, similar to that scored by his twin brother George in the later NRL fixture against the Knights, which saw the Sharks go into half time with a 22-16 lead.


Tonumaipea scored his second try in the 66th minute to seal the victory for the visitors, 26 points to 16.


Cronulla Sharks 26 (Daniel Moroko 2, Young Tonumaipea 2, Mark Taufua tries; Daniel Gigot 3 goals)
