Preview

Cronulla bounced back to their premiership-winning ways last weekend, dismantling Canberra to register their first win of the season. They faithful at Shark Park will be hoping for a similar result this weekend as they look to post a winning record for the first time this season.

Across town, St. George will want to bounce back from last week after a bad loss against Parramatta.

Both teams have named the same 17 that ran onto the park last week however the Sharks could be buoyed by the inclusions of Valentine Holmes and Gerard Beale.

The Dragons hit the road for the first time in 2017 as the Sharks will be looking to register their first win for their home crowd.
