Cronulla Sharks vs New Zealand Warriors Preview
The NRL has saved the best for last this week in a game that could really help decide the top eight once and for all.
Cronulla simply needs to win to hold on to their spot in the finals, while the 10th placed Warriors can close the gap sitting just four points behind.
New Zealand proved to everyone that they are a worthy contender in their 24-17 loss last week against the Eels, a performance they are sure to build on with their season on the line.
The Warriors pulled off two of the most memorable tries in the history of the game on the stroke of half time, and they might just go one better on Sunday against a Sharks team that gave up 38 points to the Knights.
Shaun Johnson is a chance at returning this week for the Sharks, but that still mightn’t be enough to stop the Kiwis through the middle.
The Sharks did get the better of the Warriors back in July with a punishing 46-10 victory, but that was before the Kiwis discovered their new spark.
New Zealand has covered in each of its last seven games and they appear great value to extend that record against a questionable Sharks side.
