HOME & AWAY | The Best of 2015
With the NRL soon set to announce the Sharks fixtures for 2016, we look back at the best home and away performances from the Cronulla squad in the season just gone.
We start with a match-up as played at Shark Park, against competition heavy-weights the Sydney Roosters in Round 13 of the regular season.
Coming off a last start loss at the hands of local rivals the Dragons, Shane Flanagan's men bounced back and returned to winning ways, in what was a dogged defensive display from the Sharks.
Despite the Sharks holding the bulk of early possesion, it was the Roosters who crossed for the opening points - Sharks new recruit James Maloney scooping up a loose ball, to run the best part of 90 metres to open the tri-colours' account.
The Sharks would bounce back though, through veteran Luke Lewis, who crossed for his 100th try in the top grade before Michael Gordon sent the side to the front.
Gordon would add further points to the tally in converting two penalty goals, as the Sharks hung on to a 10-4 lead to earn the two competition points in front of more than 14,000 fans.
