Cronulla Sharks vs Wests Tigers Preview

Make no mistake: Wests Tigers are an ordinary team and are battling big time. But their effort can’t be questioned and they were unlucky not to come out on top against the Warriors and Titans – admittedly, in two of worst games of the NRL era.

The presence of unavailable duo Adam Doueihi and Jackson Hastings could have easily flipped those results for a team that is averaging 9.5 points per game.

But none of those intangibles and hypotheticals help the Tigers ahead of a clash with Cronulla Sharks, who have emerged as a premiership dark horse with three consecutive wins. After pipping the Eels after the siren, they brushed aside the Dragons and Knights with unexpected ease.

Nicho Hynes is flying in a spine that has gelled superbly, their outside backs – with the versatile Siosifa Talakai unstoppable against the Knights – are among the NRL’s most potent and a well-rounded pack is getting over their opponents week after week.

Cronulla has won seven of their last eight against Wests Tigers, who have not claimed a victory at Shark Park since 2014. William Kennedy, Sione Katoa, Ronaldo Mulitalo and Luke Metcalf all bagged doubles in a 50-20 late-2021 blowout in Rockhampton.

Both sides are unchanged and it’s hard to envisage a form swing from either team significant enough to prevent a sizeable win for the super-impressive Sharks.
