Depleted Centurions no match for rampant Sharks
DEVON Sharks put their faltering start to the season behind them with a runaway 60-20 win over Exeter Centurions.
The Exeter side were well below full strength for the game and borrowed five players from the Sharks to fulfil the fixture.
For the first 20 minutes the game was close, but once Sharks stepped on the gas Centurions could not live with them.
By half time Sharks led 34-16 with Matt Allanson already over for a try hat-trick.

Allanson added a fourth try after the break and converted it himself.
Paul Davies crossed once in the first half and claimed three more after the interval to finish with four as well.
Sharks remaining tries were shared between Ross McFarlane, Sam Thomas and Jack Keiller, who took care of most of the goal-kicking.
North Devon Raiders visit Easterfield Lane this Saturday, where they will find Sharks in good spirits.
Sharks' captain Anthony Pinkerton said he hoped the win set the tone for the rest of the season.
"That was the performance the boys have had it in them all season, it was just a matter of time before we destroyed somebody," said Pinkerton.
"I know Exeter were short on players, but so did we. Bramley, Woodhead, and Cartwright were all injured, and Drew, Kirkman, D'allassandro and Whittle played for them.
"You play what is in front of you, today we did that well, hopefully this will put the club back on track for the remainder of the season."
