The Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks and St George-Illawarra Dragons will contest for the Monty Porter Cup at Remondis Stadium on Saturday night.
The Dragons are sitting pretty atop the NRL table, with two wins from two games and scoring 75 points along the way. Conversely the Sharks are coming off a 42-6 hammering at the hands of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, and will need a vastly improved performance to contain the Dragons.
The Sharks have named five-eighth Todd Carney and Sharks fans will be hoping their star five eighth will provide the spark in attack they have clearly lacked in the first two rounds.Carney will meet tough competition when he comes up again Dragons recruit Gareth Widdop who has been in outstanding form since making the move from the Storm.
Brett Morris showed what he can do against the New Zealand Warriors with a stunning 100m solo effort and Adam Quinlan has been superb at fullback. They also welcome back the two Jacks, De Belin and Stockwell who have been named on an extended bench.
The Sharks will put up a fight, but the Dragons have too much strike power and are in great form. This is always a fiery encounter but the Sharks are coming off a hiding and will struggle to contain the Dragons.
