With the representative season now out of the way, the Brisbane Broncos can now give their full and undivided attention to remaining games in the 2011 NRL premiership.
Finishing in the top four and hosting a home semi-final is important, so they must beat the Sharks to stay in touch with the other finals contenders.
That will not be easy. Cronulla have already upset some more highly regarded teams this year so Anthony Griffin will not be taking them lightly. He knows that inspirational leader, Paul Gallen will have the Sharks primed to try and claim another big scalp.
Both teams love to attack so book your tickets now for what promises to be another Friday night special.
