Preview

The Sharks head back to Remondis Stadium on Saturday night in the hope of recording their second win of the season and saving their so far disappointing 2014 season.

The Sharks face a Roosters side that was beaten by the Eels last weekend and they too will be hoping to turn their average start to the season around against the bottom of the table Sharks.

Todd Carney’s change in hairstyle didn’t help the star five-eighth performance against Manly as produced one of his most disappointing games of the 2014 season. As the race for the NSW Blues number 6 jersey heats up , Carney will be out to prove a point in this match as will his opposite number 6 , James Maloney.

The Roosters boost a massive forward pack and if their powerful pack is at their best then the Sharks may be in for a long afternoon. If the Sharks produce another lack-lustier defensive effort against the reigning premiers then the Roosters will prove too good for the Sharks.

After what has been a woeful start to the 2014 the Sharks will have to be at their best against the Roosters, otherwise their once promising season could slowly slip away from them.
