It was a vastly different game for the U20s Thunderbolts in round three of the Jersey Flegg Cup at Casey Fields, as the home side fell to an impressive Sharks outfit.
Played in wet and cold conditions, Thunderbolts started well and opened the scoring through a Jordin Leiu try.
It was one way traffic for the rest of the match, as the Sharks crossed for four tries in each half.
