SHARKS v Broncos – By the Numbers

By Jeff Petersen

An eager Sharks outfit travel to Suncorp this Friday looking to find some form and knock off a Broncos side reeling from a heavy Warriors defeat at their last start.

Yes it’s again to Suncorp Stadium (until 1994 formerly known as Lang Park) a venue where New South Welshmen know full well that this can be a formidable fortress.

Cronulla have won their last two games at Suncorp, the last being a one-point victory, thanks to a Todd Carney drop goal. However, the Sharks file is not so impressive up north with only 5 wins from 25 meetings, however they hope to go one better this time and make it a hat-trick of wins.

Paul Gallen will play his 15th game against the Broncos and will lead out a Sharks team ready to do business.        

Go Sharks!
