Sharks lose premier-league shootout in Victoria and we couldn’t stop them.” With both defences showing signs of early-season rust, Benoit said the difference in the game was Victoria’s success with its set pieces, and the Sharks’ inability to make tackles when they needed them. “We couldn’t stop their set pieces, and they really managed the field better than us,” Benoit said, adding that his club missed at least 40 per cent of its tackles. “The guys played hard – it

Offence was easy to come by and the defence – for both teams – was spotty at best, in the Bayside Sharks’ 53-32 loss to University of Victoria Saturday, in the first week of the Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League rugby season. “It was a bit of a Wild West shootout – a lot of points out there,” said Bayside head coach Dave Benoit. “Basically, they couldn’t stop us,

The Sharks will look to even their win-loss record this weekend at Vancouver’s Jericho Park, against the UBC Old Boys Ravens. “(The Ravens) are much improved from last year, but if we want to make the playoffs, and make it easy on ourselves, then

these are the types of teams we have to beat,” Benoit said. This weekend, the Sharks will be without Henderson and Chris Pack, however. Both players will be in Las Vegas playing for Canada’s national sevens squad. The Sharks’ first division squad will also battle the Ravens Saturday, at 1:15 p.m. The premiers play at 3 p.m. Bayside’s second division club is also in action Saturday in Vancouver; they play at Capilano at 11:30 a.m.

Though it’s early in the season, Benoit said it was important that his premier squad not fall into
