Sydney Roosters vs Cronulla Sharks Preview
The Sharks are about to receive a taste of what October life will be like against the Roosters on Saturday night.
The reigning champs were relentless last week against the Knights in their comprehensive 42-12 victory – a result that has seen the Roosters back into Premiership favouritism in the market.
Sydney are clearly firing on all cylinders right now and all accounts suggest they should have no trouble maintaining that pace against Cronulla.
The Roosters have now scored 40+ points in their last two games at the SCG, which spells potential disaster against a Sharks outfit that has proven very vulnerable on the wing this season.
To make matters worse, Matt Ikuvalu is a chance at returning this week for the Chooks.
Sydney has won four straight games over the Sharks dating back to 2017, and with home-field advantage, they should extend that record to five.
