The Sharks enter this clash without five Origin stars (Fifita, Graham, Holmes, Maloney and Bird), while the Tigers are missing two of their best players (Tedesco and Woods). Luke Brooks is set to make his return from a hamstring injury and it couldn’t come at a better time after the Tigers were completely rudderless in last week’s hammering at the hands of the Roosters.
The Shark have won three straight and 5 of the last 7 against the Tigers, including a 22-16 win at Leichhardt in Round 9 this year. The last seven matches have all tallied 36 or more points.
Cronulla are third on the ladder with a 9-4 record. They had a four-game win streak ended by Melbourne on home turf, going down 18-13. The 18 points conceded against Melbourne was the first time since Round 1 the Sharks had conceded more than 16 for the best defensive team in the NRL. Cronulla have played in six straight games decided by a score or less. The Wests Tigers are in total free-fall, down to 15th on the ladder with a 3-10 record and the worst differential in the NRL. The Tigers have dropped five straight and enter this off a 40-18 loss to the Sydney Roosters. The Tigers have conceded at least 22 in 9 of 13 matches this season.
Normally this encounter would be a complete mismatch in terms of form and and playing roster, but the impact of State of Origin means this Round 15 showdown will be a lot closer than usually expected.
The Sharks are missing five stars to Origin, including Andrew Fifita, Jack Bird, James Maloney, Valentine Holmes and Wade Graham, while the Tigers haven’t escaped the representative showpiece, with captain Aaron Woods and fullback James Tedesco both absent.
Cronulla haven’t lost back-to-back games this season, but they are in danger of doing so on Saturday night after they lost a tight clash to the Storm last week in the second grand final rematch of 2017.
