The Key Numbers from Sharks Clash

A Ricky Leutele try and the ensuing sideline conversion from James Maloney in the final minute has seen the Sharks steal a 20-18 win over the Bulldogs on Monday night.

Will Hopoate certainly made up for lost time following his return to the NRL. A 75-metre long-winding run was the impetus behind Josh Reynolds' try early on in the match, while his three tackle breaks and double century of metres weren't too bad either.

Josh Jackson – in his 100th NRL game – recorded a game-high 42 tackles, Josh Morris produced four offloads and three tackle breaks while David Klemmer racked up 189 metres in 64 minutes.
