With their winning momentum suddenly snapped following a shock loss at home to the Titans last week, reigning premiers Cronulla look to re-discover their mojo against a Tigers outfit who should be confident after overcoming the Bulldogs by six points in their last game.
The Sharks had been in phenomenal form in the fortnight prior to slipping up against the Gold Coast, beating both the Storm and Panthers without conceding a try.
However the Titans’ blitzing and unpredictable attack caused them problems last week, and with the Tigers playing a similar sort of style, they will have to be on guard on Saturday night.
Remarkably the Sharks have now lost three games at home this season, but their form away from the Shire has been flawless, and they will be targeting a fifth win on the road when they meet the Tigers.
With all the focus surrounding the player movements of the so-called ‘Big Four’ in the lead-up to last week, the Tigers managed to put it all behind them and focus on their on-field performance – which was ultimately one of their best of the season as they came from behind to dispatch Canterbury at ANZ Stadium.
Aaron Woods was immense up front after copping boos from his own fans before the game, while the return of Luke Brooks was just what the Tigers needed in order to stabilise in attack.
This match is a classic contrast in styles – the scintillating attack of the Tigers up against the disciplined defence of the Sharks. Cronulla won’t want to suffer back-to-back losses and I think their defence can frustrate the Tigers into error throughout the 80 minutes. Sharks to grind out a close win.
