Cronulla Sharks vs North Queensland Cowboys Preview
The Sharks are in control of their own fate from here on out with a four-point buffer between themselves and the ninth-placed Tigers.
Cronulla were manhandled by the Panthers for the second time in a row last week in Penrith, but they have a great opportunity to bounce-back on Saturday afternoon against a Cowboys side that hasn’t tasted a win since Round 7.
North Queensland also has plenty to play for sitting just two points clear of the bottom dweller Bulldogs on the ladder.
Unfortunately, the Cowboys have been hit hard by injuries once again, this time in the form of a Jason Taumalolo calf injury that looks likely to cost him the next four weeks.
Valentine Holmes could potentially return this week from an ankle injury, but it’s difficult to have any faith in the Cowboys here, especially at Juibilee.
North Queensland is 1-6 away from home this year, while they’ve also lost their last four games to the Sharks.
