NRL Team List – Sharks v Tigers

The 2019 season has come down to round 25 when the Sharks face the Tigers in a winner-take-all clash at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday.

With the two teams locked in eighth place on 24 competition points, the winner will progress to week one of the Finals, while for the other, their 2019 campaign will be over.

The Sharks lost a thriller at PointsBet Stadium to the Knights on Sunday to leave themselves in a vulnerable situation, however the potential return of Matt Moylan, coupled with the possible inclusion of Shaun Johnson, will give the Cronulla side confidence heading into enemy territory this weekend.

The pair will be assessed during the training week, with Moylan having missed the past two games with a hamstring complaint, while Johnson failed to complete the warm up leading into the Knights game and was a late withdrawal.

The fitness of those two pending, the rest of the Sharks side will take on a similar look to the one which went down 15-14 to Canberra.

As for the Tigers, their unknown surrounds the status of retiring veteran Robbie Farah, with the champion hooker racing the clock to overcome a lower leg fracture and to be fit in time to run out on Sunday afternoon.

Kick-off is at 2.00pm, with the two teams listed below.
