The common theme amongst the Sharks playing group has been while the opening 40-minutes against the Raiders saw them produce some of their best football of the 2018 season, to beat the leading teams will take a more complete, full game performance.
The Sharks ran up a 22-6 half time lead, a dominance somewhat forgotten in the hysteria surrounding a couple of second half refereeing decisions.
However, the Sharks allowed the Raiders back into the contest before hanging on to register a 28-24 win, a victory which kept them on track for a top four finish.
To keep those hopes of a finals double-shot alive, the Sharks will need to continue their winning ways against a Broncos side which found some form in a lop-side victory over Penrith last week.
The Broncos sit two points behind the Sharks, who are only two points from the competition lead.
This week the Sharks welcome back the experienced Luke Lewis, while Wade Graham has been named despite coming off at half time in the win over the Raiders.
The game against the Broncos is scheduled for a 7.50pm kick off at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday night.
