Preview

The premiers continued their unusually poor run of form at home last week, going down to the Storm as their bitter rivalry continued.

They’ll be out to right those wrongs this weekend against a struggling Tigers side missing their key Origin duo in Aaron Woods and James Tedesco.

The Sharks have Origin representatives of their own, however, with Andrew Fifita, James Maloney, Jack Bird, Valentine Holmes and Wade Graham all selected for game two.

The changes sees Gerard Beale slot in at fullback with Edrick Lee and Fa’amnu Brown join the back line while Jayson Bukuya gets a start in the second row.

Luke Brooks returns for the Tigers which will give their fans some hope as Tuimoala Lolohea looks to improve on his start with his new club.

Despite missing a host of big names, the Sharks are still filled with talent as Luke Lewis – continuing his strong run of form – and Paul Gallen will make any side formidable.

Offensively, the Sharks have struggled at times in 2017, however, their defence should do enough to blanket the Tigers’ league-worst attack.

Sharks by 6.
