Undoubtedly match of the round. What a clash looming at Shark Park. The Cronulla faithful have been lapping up their teams efforts this season. Given the recent history that gave the Sharks a big, black eye, it is great to see them put all the dramas behind them and play footy. This is a litmus test for the Sharks who have won 5 in a row and have been good without being brilliant. This is the game they have been waiting for to show they are in the upper echelon of the competition. They have the capacity to improve and at home in front of an adoring packed house it is going to be a special game.
The Broncos will miss McCullough but you know the Broncos are going to show up every week and this one will be close, but I am going to tip the Sharks here and am tipping them 1-12 ($3.60 Palmerbet). I can’t see the Sharks beating Brisbane by more than 2 converted tries so the 1-12 boosts the odds nicely in our favour.
First Try Scorer is a ripper market this week, call me blind in my loyalty to James Maloney ($26 William Hill) – he has been scoring tries regularly but just not first. Time to change that James, in front of your passionate home fans against the competition big guns, find your way over the line first son!
Great game to top off a good round of footy.
