Cornish Sharks boss Smallworth praises coaching team

Cornish Sharks

Cornish Sharks boss Brian Smallworth paid tribute to his coaching staff after they claimed an impressive win away at Bristol Apaches.

The Sharks recorded a 20-7 victory, the perfect response to their previous match where they lost 42-8 against South Wales Warriors.

"We were a lot more organised," Smallworth told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"It was as good effort from the coaching staff - they really stepped up so it was good.

He continued: "We knew what they had Bristol have a four spread offence and our defence co-ordinator, Anthony White, did a fantastic job with that.

"We bounced back from last week's defeat, but we also had a lot more players travel to this game."

The Sharks are now third in Division Two West, with Bristol in fourth position.
