The Sharks started to click last week with Nicho Hynes involved in all four tries. Cronulla can beat a Dragons side that have lost nine of their last 10 games.

St. George Illawarra Dragons produced a brilliant performance to push defending premiers Penrith Panthers all the way last week and were perhaps unfortunate that they did not earn the way after they were on the end of some questionable decisions from the officials.

Cronulla Sharks were able to produce a thrilling finale in their clash with Parramatta Eels last week as Nicho Hynes converted Teig Wilton’s last-gasp try to seal a dramatic victory on the hooter.
