Madimack Matchups - Sharks v Rabbitohs

The Sharks can entrench themselves in the top four when they meet the under-siege yet dangerous Rabbitohs in Round 6.

Despite being without superstar fullback Latrell Mitchell due to suspension, South Sydney still boast class across the park and will be determined to respond following a heavy defeat to the New Zealand Warriors on the weekend.

On the other hand, coming off a bye, Cronulla are refreshed and looking to extend their season record to four wins and one loss at Accor Stadium on Saturday night.

Here are Sharks Media's Madimack Matchups to monitor this round, with the below graphics including season stats for the players going to head-to-head.

Madimack Matchups - Round 6

Cameron McInnes v Cameron Murray

Clash of the Cams! The captains share a first name, the lock position and a relentless drive to inspire their teams. That was evident in McInnes' stirring 80-minute effort to help lead the Sharks to their comeback win over the Raiders in Round 4.

In the absence of suspended star Mitchell, the indefatigable Murray's leadership is even more valuable to a South Sydney outfit looking to regain their mojo.

Jesse Ramien v Jack Wighton

Powerhouse Sharks centre Ramien produced impressive numbers last start against Canberra, running the ball 17 times for 163 metres – the most among his team's back five – while breaking one tackle and popping three offloads.

This round he'll face off with fellow Indigenous gun Wighton. The ex-Raider has only played three matches for the Rabbitohs but showed his wares with two tries in his new club's lone victory of the year against the Bulldogs on Good Friday.

The 2020 Dally M medallist shapes as the go-to player on South Sydney's left edge.

Teig Wilton v Keaon Koloamatangi

Back from a knee injury that curtailed his 2023 season, Cronulla's Wilton has reaffirmed his standing as one of the game's most promising back-rowers.

A standout display against the Bulldogs in Round 2 in which he bagged a try and received four Dally M Medal votes underlined his talent and potential.

Fellow edge forward Koloamatangi, a year older than Wilton at 25, made his State of Origin debut for NSW last season and is tough to contain with his size and strength. He looms as one of South Sydney's main attacking weapons on Saturday.
