Canterbury Bulldogs vs Cronulla Sharks Preview
The Bulldogs are now into $1.10 to finish with the wooden spoon after squandering a perfect opportunity to draw level with the Broncos last week against South Sydney.
Canterbury took a slim lead into the sheds at half-time before Lachlan Lewis was sin-binned for rough housing after the siren, a decision that ultimately led to the Rabbitohs coming from behind to snatch a win.
Costly mistakes have been the story of the season for the Dogs so far, and that was certainly the case for the Sharks last week in their 34-18 loss to the Raiders.
Cronulla committed 10 errors and a whopping 61 missed tackles against Canberra, a performance Josh Hannay’s side will be looking to put behind them as they cling to a spot in the eight.
The Dogs picked up their first win of the season against the Sharks back in Round 7 and there’s nothing stopping them from repeating that performance.
Canterbury showed in the first half last week that they are capable of stringing together some dangerous sets, while they also did well defensively to hold a star-studded Rabbitohs team to just 10 points in the first 40 minutes.
A similar effort should see the Bulldogs keep this close and there is no question they are a better chance than the current line suggests.
