July 5, 2014: Backing up having trumped the Broncos 24-22 in a surprising comeback victory in round 16, the Sharks knew all too well the challenge they would front when falling four tries in arrears to the Sydney Roosters.

For the second consecutive week the Sharks had conceded in excess of 20 points without registering one of their own, but inspired by their showing at Suncorp Stadium the week prior, the side would again turn history on its head to record arguably the club's greatest ever win. 

Early tries to Mitchell Aubusson, Mitchell Pearce, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Brendan Elliot did little to dent the Sharks' hopes of a late resurgence.

But 24 points down to the competition's defending premiers would mean Cronulla would again have to go above and beyond to re-write the record books for the second time in the space of eight days.

With a host of stars missing through injury, suspension or otherwise - and against all odds - that's exactly what they did.
