Sharks score second win over Panthers

6:42 am on 27 April 2014

Cronulla have scored their second win of the NRL rugby league season in a thrilling come-from-behind 24-20 victory over Penrith in Sydney.

Jeff Robson crossed for the match-winner in the 77th minute backing up a Wade Graham bust for the converted four-pointer.

The Panthers crossed the line a minute later, but the Dean Whare try that would have given them victory was disallowed for obstruction.

Robson's try came just three minutes after a Peter Wallace four-pointer, on the back of a Whare break, put the Panthers ahead 20-18.

It was an exciting end to a dour first hour, especially early in the second half which was punctuated by dropped ball.
