Last Time Played: Sharks v Warriors

It might’ve been a ‘home’ game for the Sharks, but Cronulla officials were left to defend their decision to move their match against the Warriors to Owen Delany Park at Taupo in New Zealand in Round 4 last year. The Sharks entered the match with back-to-back wins but were swamped by the might of the Warriors, who took the match 26-18.

With the ‘away’ crowd firmly behind the Warriors, the new-look Aucklanders, following sweeping changes from coach Ivan Cleary, threw the ball around in entertaining fashion to cross for four tries. Glen ‘Fish’ Fisiiahi was particularly damaging on debut at fullback, scoring two tries on his way to three Dally M points.
