The Cronulla Sharks need one more win to cement a spot in the NRL finals. They have not lost consecutive matches since round 3, can they bounce back against the New Zealand Warriors?

Cronulla Sharks Form


The Cronulla Sharks are holding onto 8th spot in the NRL ladder, four points ahead of Wests Tigers, Manly and the Warriors. The Sharks suffered a close 14-12 loss against Parramatta but bounced back with a 30-18 win against the Titans.

A disappointing 38-12 defeat against the Panthers followed, but they bounced back again by beating North Queensland Cowboys 28-12. That good work was undone with a 38-10 defeat to Newcastle last week. 

The defence was terrible, missing 40 tackles and their set completion was poor at 72% (28/39) sets.
