Cronulla Sharks vs Manly Sea Eagles Preview
The Sea Eagles will continue their quest for a top four spot on Sunday afternoon when they take on the seventh-placed Sharks in Redcliffe.
Manly’s loss to the Raiders three weeks ago feels like a distant memory following back-to-back blowouts over the Dragons and Titans, and they should feel confident in achieving a similar result against a Sharks side that is likely to be missing Shaun Johnson.
Des Hasler does have some injury concerns to address himself after Dylan Walker suffered a head knock last week, while prop Josh Aloiai looks set to miss this game after copping a one-game suspension.
The Sharks have definitely shown enough grit in recent weeks to suggest they can make a contest of this, but they also tend to switch off at times in crucial moments – a mistake that will cost them dearly against a Manly side gearing up for the finals.
More importantly though, the Sharks have struggled to string together back-to-back wins over the last month to go along with a 1-5 record against current top eight sides.
