2024 NRL draw: 10 unmissable Sharks matches

Grab a calendar and circle the dates - these are the Sharks NRL matches you can't afford to miss in season 2024.

In what shapes as another pulsating campaign, with coach Craig Fitzgibbon's men striving to improve on consecutive finals appearances in the hunt for a premiership, Sharks supporters are bound to be entertained each week.

The excitement continues to build after the release of the draw on Monday. Our schedule is jam-packed with must-see games, including these 10 blockbusters:

Round 1: Warriors (away)

The official action commences with a trip across the ditch to face the resurgent New Zealand Warriors, who finished fourth in 2023. 

After fine-tuning their combinations in the Pre-season Challenge, the Sharks will be fired up to hit the ground running and spoil Roger Tuivasa-Sheck's NRL return.

Round 2: Bulldogs (home)

The atmosphere will be pumping at the first of 10 games at PointsBet Stadium. Having won 11 of the past 13 clashes with the Bulldogs, including five straight, Cronulla will aim to extend their dominance against a team bolstered by the signings of Stephen Crichton and ex-Shark Bronson Xerri.

Round 4: Raiders (home)

The first of four massive Sunday afternoon matches in the Shire. After breaking a so-called hoodoo by beating the Raiders for the first time in 10 matches in round 27 last season, the Sharks will be eager to start a streak of their own.

Round 9: Dragons (home)

You can all but guarantee PointsBet Stadium will be sold out for the local derby, with the Sunday afternoon time-slot making this match an ideal family outing.

Adding to the usual spice, Shane Flanagan - the coach of Cronulla's historic 2016 premiership-winning team - will return to the ground where he masterminded many famous victories, only this time in the opposing box.

Round 10: Storm (away)

Victorian supporters will get a chance to catch the Sharks live when they renew their long-standing rivalry with Melbourne in May.

AAMI Park historically hasn't been a happy hunting ground for the boys in black, white and blue, with two wins in 14 matches, but the tide is due to turn.

Round 11: Roosters (home - Suncorp Stadium)

Magic Round is always huge, but the heat will go up another notch as the Sharks face the Roosters for the first time since last season's elimination final heart-breaker.

Round 12: Panthers (home)

It'll be a special Saturday night with the three-time champion Panthers coming to town, giving the Sharks a chance to flex their premiership muscles.

Being Indigenous Round, Sharks players including Nicho Hynes, Will Kennedy, Jesse Ramien and Braydon Trindall are set to proudly represent their culture.

Round 18: Titans (home - C.ex Coffs International Stadium)

Returning to our home away from home at Coffs Harbour for a fourth consecutive year, the Sharks will look to remain undefeated at the regional venue.

Cronulla put on a show for the locals by downing the Knights at a sold-out C.ex Coffs International Stadium in 2023, having beaten the Titans in the two prior editions.

Round 24: Knights (home)

This is the lone NRL-NRLW double-header at PointsBet Stadium, with the women also taking on the Knights to kick off the mouthwatering Sunday arvo action.

Round 25: Dragons (away)

Our NRL and NRLW teams will head south to face the Dragons at Wollongong, the men this time playing before the women.
