The Rebels will be looking to bounce back from their last start loss to the Waratahs when they host the Sharks tonight. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 7:45pm AEDT.

The Melbourne Rebels gave up a 17-point lead last start when they were soundly beaten by a rampant NSW Waratahs outfit who turned in their best second-half performance in some time to run away with the game.

Adding pain to Wessels’ side, was the loss of Dane Haylett-Petty, who left the game early after being knocked out.

Jack Maddocks starts at fullback, and makes up a third of an enigmatic back three. Marika Koroibete was impressive on return last week, whilst Sefa Naivalu is one of the improving players in the Australian Rugby scene.

Will Genia is a key player for the Rebels, and his combination with loose forwards Amanaki Mafi, Fa’ainga and Angus Cottrell has been key to the Rebels impressive gain line stats this season.

The Sharks, on the other hand, are one of the unknown packages of the competition. On paper, their talent through players 1-23 is as good as any other.

However, that hasn’t quite translated on field yet. Their loss to the Brumbies last week was error-riddled and uninspiring, and they’ll be desperate to post their second win of the season against a wounded Rebels.

Where the game will be won:

The Sharks really aren’t that bad, and they will provide a tough contest for the Rebels tonight. I think it’ll be very close, and if the Rebels forwards don’t turn up to play – they could get a swift one pulled on them.
