The Sharks have been allocated four day games, a 5.30pm twilight match at home and a Monday night clash for the final six rounds of the 2015 NRL season released today.
In the start of their run home to what will hopefully be a finals berth, the Sharks have been given a 5.00pm kick-off time in Auckland for the Warriors in Round 21 game (3.00pm Sydney time, August 1).
Four of the next five games will be at home, starting with a 5.30pm family-friendly kick-off time on a Saturday for their Indigenous Round home game against the Cowboys (August 8).
From there it will be the Storm on a Monday night at home (August 17), then a 3pm Saturday game against the Wests Tigers (August 22) in the last of three Remondis Stadium matches in a row.
In Round 25 the Sharks travel to Pirtek Stadium to face the Eels at 3pm on a Saturday (August 29), before a Round 26 blockbuster, to be shown on free-to-air on Channel 9 against the Manly Sea Eagles at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon on Father’s Day (September 6).
The Sharks draw for the final six rounds is as follows:
Round 21 - Sharks v Warriors – Mt Smart Stadium - Saturday, August 1 –3pm (Sydney time)
Round 22 – Sharks v Cowboys – Remondis Stadium – Saturday, August 8 – 5.30pm

Sharks Group CEO Lyall Gorman said: “It is great to have clarity around the final six rounds of the draw so our Club, our Members, our Corporate Partners and our supporters can lock in their match- day attendance plans for our run into the Finals Series.
“I know that our players and coaching staff are looking forward to massive crowds in our final four home games to give the boys that extra boost that our amazing Remondis Stadium home crowd delivers.
“In the near future the Club will be making a special announcement about a new three-game Membership across the last four home games to encourage as many supporters as possible to get on board and enjoy the ride home in our exciting and very real quest for a spot in the final eight.”
