Wins for Sharks, Panthers

8:10 am on 6 June 2010

The Cronulla Sharks have crushed the Sydney Roosters 42-18 in their National Rugby League match at Sydney Football Stadium in a seven tries to three romp, answering the critics of their attacking prowess.

It was the first 30-point plus effort from the Sharks this season and their highest tally since they racked up 46 against the Broncos on June 22 last year.

Penrith pair Brad Tighe and Luke Walsh came back to haunt former club Newcastle as the Panthers returned to winning ways with a 28-10 win, also in Sydney.

Winger Tighe scored two tries and halfback Walsh tormented the Knights with his incisive short kicking game as Penrith bounced back from last Sunday's defeat by South Sydney.
