Siosofa Talakai was in career best form in April as the Sharks went on a four-game winning streak, before losing to the Storm over the Easter weekend. His most memorable performance came against the Sea Eagles in Round 7 where he scored twice within fourteen minutes of the kick-off.
After a disappointing loss to the Broncos, Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks face New Zealand Warriors at PointsBet Stadium this Sunday.
