Sydney Roosters vs Cronulla Sharks Preview
The Roosters and Sharks were two of the big winners to emerge from Round 4 as both sides now look to keep momentum rolling on Saturday.
Sydney’s stalwarts came through with the goods last week as the Morris brothers and James Tedesco played a big part in the 32-12 win over the Warriors.
The Sharks, meanwhile, picked up a blowout win of their own against the hapless Cowboys thanks to two tries respectively from Connor Tracey and William Kennedy.
The Chooks hold the wood over the Sharks with five straight wins on the board dating back to 2017, but this one could turn out much closer than the market suggests.
Cronulla has proven themselves a handful on several occasions this year with some strong second half performances, while the return of Ronaldo Mulitalo and Jesse Ramien should pose a few challenges to a Roosters defence minus Luke Keary.
So far these two sides have played to 3-1 records at the line, but with the Sharks welcoming back some key pieces, they look a good bet to keep this tight.
