Sharks strike late to down Rabbitohs

A BRILLIANT late try to Cronulla winger John Williams capped a gutsy 20-7 victory over South Sydney on Saturday night as the Sharks moved closer to sealing a finals berth for the first time since 2008.

Williams scored a 45-metre try on the buzzer after pouncing on a grubber kick from Isaac De Gois who broke the Rabbitohs' line before finding his winger much to the delight of the crowd of 16,423 at Shark Park.

Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan told Grandstand his team's gritty defensive performance was the key to victory.

"It was 17 players really committed defensively (that) got the job done," Flanagan said.

"We defended our way to victory."
