After what has been an extremely disappointing month of footy for the Cronulla Sharks, they return to Remondis Stadium in search of their first win of the season against the Warriors.

The Warriors make the trip across the Tasman off the back of an impressive win against the Tigers in Wellington and will be looking to continue their winning ways against a Sharks side lacking in confidence right from start of the 2014 season.

The Sharks will likely face the Warriors without fullback Michael Gordon after leaving the field with a knee injury, during the Sharks 30-0 loss to an emotionally charged Knights side.

The Sharks have a lot to prove in the match as they sit win-less on the bottom of the ladder and this alone could be enough for Cronulla to get across the line.
