Last week’s shock loss to the Broncos may have been the reality call the Sharks needed with the finals fast approaching.
Cronulla’s four-game winning streak came to an end as Josh Hannay’s side fell by eight points at Suncorp, but with so many teams struggling to make up ground, the Sharks still find themselves sitting eighth on the ladder.
That isn’t to say Sunday’s game against the Warriors will come easy, though.
The Kiwis are equally as desperate to turn things around after suffering their fourth straight loss to the Dragons in overtime last week, a result that has left New Zealand with plenty of work to do now sitting 12th.
Injuries have largely been to blame for the Warriors’ demise, and unfortunately, things haven’t improved with Tohu Harris and Eliesa Katoa suffering shoulder injuries in the loss to St George.
Betting wise, it’s very difficult to feel overly confident in the Sharks, but they do deserve the benefit of the doubt with a strong 9-6 record on the back of a loss.
