Sharks stun Dragons

6:05 am on 22 March 2011

Cronulla pulled off a massive upset in last night's National Rugby League match beating the premiership favourites St George Illawarra 16-10 at a rain-soaked Toyota Stadium in Sydney.

A week after their humiliating first round loss to the Canberra Raiders, Cronulla kick-started their 2011 campaign by bullying the Dragons into one of their worst efforts in recent seasons.

It continued a weekend of stunning form reversals, with the Sharks joining Manly, Penrith and Brisbane in hitting back from poor round one defeats.

The Sharks centre Ben Pomeroy celebrated his late inclusion in the team by scoring a memorable double in their first win over the Dragons sicbne 2008.
