Show Preview

The Cronulla Sharks can put one hand on a finals berth when they take on an improving Brisbane Broncos outfit at Suncorp Stadium. Tune in to some Saturday night NRL action with live scores on The Roar from 5:30pm (AEST).

No one would have cheered Mitchell Pearce’s field goal to secure the Knights a win over the Titans more than the Sharks. It ensures Cronulla head into the final fortnight with destiny in their own hands… though a final-round clash with the ladder-leading Storm looms ominously on the horizon.

The Sharks and caretaker Josh Hannay have done a mighty job to fight past a disastrous start to the season to be within touching distance of the finals. They will, however, be keen to improve their points-for standing to ensure they remain clear of the Titans in the event of any final-round drama.

The Broncos, however, are no easy kill. Kevvie Walters and his charges have made some positives steps towards a brighter future in recent rounds, culminating in a thrilling two-point win over the Warriors last week to all but end their finals hopes. Looking to farewell captain Alex Glenn with as many wins as possible in front of their home fans, the one-time powerhouse might just have another finals-wrecking run in store this evening.

Second-rower Jordan Riki has been named but is no guarantee of starting as he battles an ankle injury sustained at training, with TC Robati on standby. The news is better for Xavier Coates after an elbow injury late in their win over the Warriors.

The big news at the Sharks is the season-ending broken jaw to in-form winger Ronaldo Mulitalo. Replacing him won’t be easy, with Mawene Hiroti rushed back into the starting 13 despite a hand injury. Aiden Tolman will return from his suspension through the bench.
