The likes of Michael Ennis, Jeff Robson and fullback Michael Gordon praised the efforts of the Sharks forwards in their win over the Rabbitohs, with the platform laid in the middle of the field giving the skill players time and room to work with. 

And while Paul Gallen, Andrew Fifita and Luke Lewis are amongst those to generally dominate the headlines, players such as Chris Heighington are equally important to the team dynamic. 

Heighington spoke with Sharks TV from the dressing room at Allianz Stadium straight after the game. 

See what he had to say about the Sharks win and the challenge of traveling to Townsville to tackle the Cowboys, with his interview now playing on Sharks TV.
