The Sharks played host to the Warriors in front of more than 15,000 fans at Remondis Stadium in an important clash in the context of both side's seasons.
The visitors opened their account through former Cronulla outside back Jono Wright, before Luke Lewis touched down under the posts to send the hosts to the front.
In a match where the momentum swung between the two sides, the Sharks had looked to have sealed a come-from-behind win when Andrew Fifita's solo try sent his side to the front.
But not to be outdone, Kiwi sensation Shaun Johnson would dazzle the Cronulla defence with his light stepping, slicing the Sharks line and scoring what proved to be the match winner.
