Cronulla Sharks v Canterbury Bulldogs
The Cronulla Sharks take on their Sydney rivals the Canterbury Bulldogs at Shark Park in round 11 of the 2018 NRL and the great news for Rugby fans is that you can watch all of the action live online via our NRL live streaming partners.
Cronulla went into the season as one of the favourites for the title but after a shocking start, they are now starting to rebuild their campaign. A good recent run has seen them move into the top 8 and incredibly they are level on points with Melbourne in 4th.
The need to keep their winning run going however as they are just 2 points ahead of the Broncos and Knights and if they don’t win this game, they could find themselves outside of the all important top 8 come the end of the round.
The Doggies are having yet another year of struggle as they have managed just 3 wins from their opening 10 matches, a run that see’s them go into the round down in 13th place and just the 2 points off of the foot of the table. That of course mean, Canterbury could end the round in last.
The Sharks have won each of their last 4 matches coming into this one and they have won 3 of their last 4 at home.
Canterbury have won just 1 of their last 4 matches but that 1 win did come last time out. Away from home they have won just 1 game all season.
Paul Gallen and Bukuya are back for the Sharkies with Seumanufagai & Paulo dropping out to the bench. Dugan and Lewis are both named in reserve and could feature on their return from injury.
Canterbury make just the 1 change with Dave Klemmer replacing the injured Fualolo.
The Sharkies have home advantage, the stronger line up, the better form and they have players pushing to come back meaning competition is high.
With everything seemingly against the Bulldogs, it will be no surprise that we are going to back the Sharkies for the win.
The atmosphere at Shark Park always makes the Sharkies step up their game and with so much quality in their squad, the under-strength and out of form Doggies will find the going tough.
