Last Time Played: Sharks v Cowboys

The Sharks caused an upset in their Round 4 clash at Dairy Farmers Stadium, winning 20-14. The home side dominated a lot of the key statistical categories, running for more metres (1492-1379), completing a higher percentage of sets (76 compared with 71) and making fewer errors (10 opposed to 14), but the visitors came out on top on the scoreboard.

Coming off the back of a win against reigning premiers Manly a week earlier, the Sharks scored late tries in both halves to claim their first win against the Cowboys since 2010. The Cowboys dominated possession with 54 per cent, but just couldn’t crack the Cronulla defence when it mattered.
