Preview

Despite losing their last three matches, the Warriors have named an unchanged line-up ahead of Cronulla’s visit on Friday night.

A 24-12 loss to North Queensland last weekend means New Zealand is now three wins outside the eight, as their finals chances are all but over.

On the other hand, the Sharks are fighting to stay inside the top four, with North Queensland hot on their heels in fifth position.

Cronulla will be without their golden point hero from the two sides’ meeting back in round 16, as James Maloney will miss due to a hand issue.

Fa’amanu Brown replaces Maloney at five-eighth, while James Segeyaro starts at hooker and Jack Bird returns at centre.

Cronulla would love to keep in touch with the top sides, and they should do that with a win here.

Sharks by 10.
