Preview

The Sharks' tough month continues, after a loss to the Storm and a win against the Tigers, they now have the Sea Eagles and the Roosters with their Origin stars back on deck.

Their past five wins have come by a converted try or less and while some may say the reigning premiers are close game specialists, their form has been indifferent, to say the least.

Their five Origin stars come back into the starting side this weekend to take on the fifth-placed Sea Eagles looking to make the leap into the top four. A win could even see them overtake the Sharks if they needed any added motivation.

The Sea Eagles are one of only three teams undefeated on the road (Storm and Sharks) this season and that coupled with the Sharks average - to say the least - home form will give them the confidence required to topple the premiers.

The Sharks have scored 20 points just twice in the past seven weeks with both of those efforts coming against the lowly Tigers and with the Sea Eagles having had two byes over the past month, they should be fresh to give the Sharks a red hot go.

Jake Trbojevic and Martin Taupau will go head to head with Cronulla's workhorse-like pack with Darcy Lussick included on the bench for some much-needed grunt Meanwhile Tom Trbojevic will look to recapture the form that saw him dazzle the competition before he went down with a leg injury.

The Sharks are favourites, and rightly so, however, this promises to be a cracker of a contest to end round 16. We'll keep going with the Sharks' theme of close games...
