Shoalhaven have celebrated their 50th anniversary with a 19-point victory over Campbelltown on Saturday.

The Shoalies ran in five tries to two in the 33-14 victory, the only match to be played on Saturday with round nine to be completed next weekend.

Brothers Steven and Mark Brandon each crossed for a try as five-eighth Steven steered the team around the park, playing a role in three of the side’s five tries.

Shoalhaven were in control for much of the match, leading 19-0 at halftime, however Campbelltown crossed early in the second half to cut the deficit to 12.

The Shoalies recovered from the setback to retake control of the game, with a Steven Brandon break ultimately leading to a Graham Porter try following a charge down. 

Both sides crossed for late tries, Kenyan Taula scoring Campbelltown’s second try before Steven Brandon broke free to set up Jeremy Thomas to close out the scoring for Shoalhaven.
