First game without ScoMo as number one ticket holder for the sharks. They could be shaky without the spiritual guidance from the stands.

Nah if anything the Sharks will improve because of that. Their captain won’t try and play every other position on the field, their halfback won’t claim “I don’t hold the ball mate” and they won’t sh*t themselves.

On that basis, the Scomo-free Sharks by 50.


Cronulla playing some good footy. I think we could be on board to challenge them but I think we're not there yet with our combinations. We might be slower than expected coming out the gate, but still promising.

We need to take care of the arm wrestle, a lot more aggression. I think we'll be better than last week.

Either team 1-12 is my prediction. Good luck to both teams!
