Parramatta Eels vs Cronulla Sharks Preview
The Eels will be looking to put their home-field advantage to good use again on Saturday night when they take on a feisty-looking Sharks team at Bankwest.
Parramatta shocked the country last week with a home win over the Storm, although much like their win over the Broncos a week earlier, it took another big second-half effort to get the job done.
The Sharks opened their account in Round 1 with a big win over the Dragons, and they were far from disgraced in last week’s slugfest against the Raiders in sloppy conditions.
Cronulla coach John Morris is still awaiting the return of Jesse Ramien, Royce Hunt, and Shaun Johnson over the coming month, but that isn’t to say the Sharks can’t at the very least keep this game respectable.
The Eels will now go without Waqa Blake after the centre pulled up with a calf issue at training, while Ryan Matterson is also undergoing the HIA protocol.
In the first two weeks alone we’ve already seen the Sharks show that same grit and determination that earned them a surprise finals berth last year.
With an equally impressive 7-3 record at the line on the back of a loss, the Sharks are worth a wager here.
