Cronulla had earlier this season seemed to brush off the fraudsters moniker but after allowing 30 points or more in their last 3 games to top 8 opponents the question has again resurfaced whether or not they are for real or not. 

Brisbane do have a habit sometimes of dropping these games where they are favoured and expected to win but my prediction is that coach Kevvie Walters will have his team prepared following their Bye and will be ready to attack the Sharks weaknesses. 

  • Brisbane have won 7 of their last 9 games at Suncorp
  • 6 of the last 7 matchups between these teams have all finished with margins of 1-12 points
  • The 1-12 Margin is hitting at 56% this season with Home teams winning at a 60% rate
  • Kotoni Staggs has scored in his last two games against the Sharks


Head to Head

 
The Broncos and Sharks have met on 7 occasions since the beginning of the 2019 season with Brisbane winning 5 times and the last 2 in a row.

The Winning Margin has finished between 1-12 points in all but one game with 5 of 7 finishing in single digits. 

The last 4 games in a row have gone Under the Game Total with only 2 in 7 games going Over. The outright winner has also covered the line in each of the last 7 matchups.

The Broncos 2 game win streak was cut by the Titans in round 12 but their overall form over the past 2 months has been strong winning 5 of their last 7 matchups. 

With the majority of the team enjoying the Bye last weekend the Broncos will come into this game refreshed with their Origin stars probably not expected to play big minutes. 

The Broncos are scoring the 4th most tries on average in the league but have the lowest average of Tackles Inside Opposition 20m.

Brisbane Broncos Team News


Reece Walsh won’t play following his head knock in Origin with the likely replacement Selwyn Cobbo which would see Josiah Karapani come back into the 17 at centre. 

Pat Carrigan and Payne Haas are also set to back up from their Origin campaigns.

The Sharks have allowed their opponents to score at least 30 points in their last 3 games straight with it happening only once in the 9 games prior. A sharp drop in defensive form is something that will irk coach Craig Fitzgibbon who likes to prioritise strong defensive structures.

Despite losing two in a row the Sharks are still 2nd on the ladder and have a relatively good run home if they can get on top of the Broncos in this one.

Cronulla Sharks Team News


Nicho Hynes wasn’t named and will be rested following his Origin start. Cam McInnes played 48 minutes but made a load of tackles and will be monitored up until game day. 

Daniel Atkinson and Braydon Trindall are the halves pairing with Sifa Talakai starting in the backrow.
