Cronulla Sharks v Sydney Roosters
The Cronulla Sharks welcome the Sydney Roosters to Shark Park for a highly anticipated match up from round 4 of the 2018 NRL season and the great news for fans of these 2 teas is that you can watch all of the action live online for just a 1 off low cost.
Both of these 2 international packed squads have under-performed so far this season as both teams went into the new amongst the favourites for the Minor Premiership in Australia, but both are in mid table at this early stage.
The Sharkies start the round in 9th place with 2 wins from their opening 4 games whilst the Roosters are in 6th but with the same record.
Sydney have had the better attack so far this season whilst the Sharkies have had the stronger defence but with so much quality on both sides of the park, we could be set for one of the matches of the season and a game that really kick starts one of the teams, or both team, campaigns.
Both teams have won 2 and lost 2 matches so far this season in the NRL. Cronulla have won both of their last 2 outings whilst the Roosters have won 2 of their last 3 but did lose last time out to the Warriors at home.
Josh Dugan is back in the full back role after missing last week, with Matt Moylan at 6. That see’s everybody switch back to their regular positions with Hodkinson and Lee in reserve.
Update: Dugan misses out so Moylan goes to fullback with Hodkinson in the halves.
The Roosters make no changes despite their shock loss last time out.
After such a disappointing performance and game overall for the Roosters last time out, you have to expect the Roosters to come out hot in this game and with a point to prove.
That is the likely reason why they have made no changes and it sets this game up to be a great one.
The Sharkies are always better going forward than in defence and with the Roosters playing a much more structured style than their hosts, we believe that that plays into the hands of Cronulla and we are going to back them for the win.
