Last week’s 30-point belting of the Tigers was enough to vault the Sharks back inside the eight, but they’ll still need luck (and wins) to go their way if they hold any hope of playing finals.
Tied on points with the Titans and Raiders, Cronulla needs to win big this week over Brisbane to boost their points differential and also rely on other results working in their favour.
Stranger things have happened but given the form the Broncos have shown in recent weeks, the first part of that equation looks unlikely.
After an encouraging one-point loss to the Roosters, Kevin Walters’ men picked up where they left off last week with a gutsy two-point win over the Warriors.
Surprisingly, Brisbane could now finish the year ahead of the rival Cowboys on the ladder, while there’s nothing stopping them from venturing as high as 11th if things go their way.
The Broncos’ track record against the Sharks is also promising with four wins from their last five meetings.
