Cronulla Sharks vs Melbourne Storm Preview

Another crucial tie will see the eighth-placed Sharks take on the Melbourne side that is likely to be without several rested stars, but who are also still chasing the minor premiership.

The Sharks’ season can be compared reasonably consistently with the aforementioned Raiders and surprise, surprise, it has resulted in a virtually identical scenario in the final week of the regular season.

The key difference of course being their stronger for-and-against, and should both sides lose, the Sharks will almost certainly finish eighth.

The Storm had the opportunity to close out another minor premiership and make history last week, but their incredible winning streak was ended by the Eels, and they have been joined on 42 competition points by the Panthers.

I think that the Sharks will be desperate, but I also think that a Storm B side is the better bet.
