Preview

The Sharks bounced back after their loss to the Dragons with a strong win over Parramatta last week and will be looking to continue that this week against the Knights.

James Segeyaro made his Sharks debut and should only get better and more acquainted with their system and he gives them another string to their bow going forward.

While the Sharks will be out to claim back to back wins for the first time this season, the Knights were back to their old selves last week, copping a 40-0 drubbing at the hands of the Panthers. Fullback Brendan Elliot returns for the Knights, however, it’s hard to see that being enough for the Knights to get the points.

Even if that is the case, coach Nathan Brown will want them to find the way they had been playing in the first three rounds.

The Sharks should be too good at home and can’t afford a loss which could see them lose grip on the top four.
