The Navy Sharks produced by far their best performance of the 2012 Sevens season at the Newquay Surf Sevens . With a squad bolstered by some of the star performers from the recent Navy Sevens the team made the main competition knock out stages for the first time. Having beaten the Capio Eggs, including Navy colleague Ben Priddey, in the round of 16 they eventually succumbed to Apache in the quarter finals. However they made Apache work for their win and the team’s improvement, not only throughout the season, but also from when they met Apache in the group stages was evident for all who were there.
