While they were pushed all the way to the finishing line the Sharks managed to eventually get the better of the Eels and emerge with the all-important two competition points.
As a result the Sharks have climbed into the top four with one round remaining, with the Fathers Day clash with Manly to determine their finals future.
One of the most consistent performers for the Sharks in recent weeks has been centre Gerard Beale and again he carried out his role as required on Saturday, with his combination with young gun Valentine Holmes building and improving with each match.
Beale spoke about the Eels win and what lies ahead for the Sharks in an exclusive Sharks TV interview.
See what Beale had to say straight after the game on Saturday night, now playing on Sharks TV.
