WINGER Vincent Silulu crossed for a club record nine tries in Rockingham Coastal Sharks� massive 86-24 victory over Kalamunda Bulldogs at Franklin Offshore Sportsplex last Saturday.

The win secured third spot on the ladder at the end of the regular season, with the Sharks to play off with North Beach Sea Eagles tomorrow afternoon in a do or die semi final clash.

The thumping win allowed the Sharks the freedom to try new combinations and plays ahead of the finals, and it paid dividends as the Sharks ran in 16 tries to four, with Silulu�s nine taking him past the previous club record of seven tries in a single match.

Rhys Peakman was the only other multiple try scorer, bagging two, with Andrew Jeffrey, Hayden Dangen-Toby, Jarek Goebel, Willem Boshoff and Regy Manu each crossing the line once. Dangen-Toby took his season total to 17 to finish the regular season as the Premiership�s leading try scorer; Silulu finished the fourth highest scorer with his nine tries boosting his season total to 13.

Among the best players were Silulu, Goebel and Jay Jay Faliu.

The Sharks reserves side capped off winning the minor premiership with a resounding 100-0 win over the Bulldogs reserves, with Moses Tuivoavoa and Julian Wilson Wyllie each bagging hat-tricks.

The thirds, who won 20-0, and under 18s both finished the regular season in second, while women�s league tab side finished the season in fifth with a good 28-0 win.

Tomorrow�s clash between the Sharks and Sea Eagles is set to kick off at 5pm at Franklin Offshore Sportsplex, but is subject to change.
