Two dominating first half performances at their last two starts have set the NSW Cup Sharks on the road to successive victories, with a third win well and truly in their sights when they take on the Panthers at Remondis Stadium on Saturday.

The NSW Cup Sharks ran out convincing 46-10 winners after building on their 26-0 half time advantage against the Jets, while they also ran up a similar lead in scoring a big win over the Manly Sea Eagles the week prior.

On Saturday however the challenge will step up a notch for the Sharks against a Panthers side playign well and entrenched inside the top eight.

The Sharks have again named a strong line up, with Tupou Sopoaga returning to the team after a solid few games with the NRL team. He joins Junior Moors and Junior Roqica in what is an impressive back row combination.

In the backs Nathan Gardner returned in the game against the Jets and is again on deck to tackle the Panthers, with the talented Kurt Mann shifting from fullback into the centres.

The Sharks play the Panthers in the NSW Cup at Remondis Stadium on Saturday as a part of a three game roster, with the match scheduled to kick off at 12.45pm.
