Bitter rivals Manly and Cronulla meet on Sunday afternoon with both sides looking to cement spots inside the top-eight.

The Sea Eagles were stout last week, holding the raiders to just six points in a defensive masterclass while Cronulla bounced back from a shocking defeat to the Dragons to score a narrow victory over the Bulldogs.

Manly's record against Cronulla is imposing but will the loss of Tommy Turbo be too much for the home side?

Sea Eagles Form & Team News


The Sea Eagles were terrific against the top-four Canberra Raiders last week, holding them to just the single try. The win came at a cost however, with superstar Tom Trbojevic set to miss the next fortnight at least with a hamstring injury. Dylan Walker will also miss with an ankle injury.

Brendan Elliot moves to fullback and Lachlan Croker goes to five-eighth. Jorge Taufua returns on the wing and Martin Taupau back from injury in the front row.

Sharks Form & Team News

 
The Sharks bounced back after their disappointing loss to the Dragons with a gritty two point win over the Bulldogs. Sione Katoa was the man for Cronulla, scoring a hat-trick to pull his side over the line.

Andrew Fifita is named to start with Braden Hamlin-Uele going back to the interchange.

Sea Eagles vs Sharks Match Up


Tom Trbojevic's injury will see Brendan Elliot line up at fullback, opposite superstar Shark Matt Moylan. Elliot has a great record against Cronulla, scoring a try in three of his last four appearances against the Sharks. Moylan will need to step up and generate plenty of attacking thrusts for his side if they are to continue their climb up the ladder.
