LEADING into this week?s Cronulla vs St George Illawarra game, as part of an ongoing preview, I thought it would be best to look at and debunk some of the myths surrounding the St George Illawarra Dragons, when compared to their rivals. After some research, here is what I found out.
CRONULLA coach Stuart Raper has enjoyed the luxury of naming the same team which defeated Parramatta in extra time last weekend for this week's game against the Dragons.
PARRAMATTA were the better team on the day, but that didn't stop Cronulla from surging home and stealing the two points at the end of the evening. After a weekend of deliberation, here is how the Player of the Year points and Sharks Den Survivor voting panned out for round seven.
ANOTHER week, another hard fought win to Cronulla. Sharks and Eels fans' hearts collectively went into meltdown as the game ticked into extra time, but thankfully Nigel Vagana was quick to score a golden point, preventing too much prolonged agony.
WHAT to do? Last night Cronulla completely out-enthused their more revered opponents, Canberra, with not a single player offering a sub-par performance. Canberra were completely shut out by the Sharks, and hopefully that will be reflected as we go into round six of the SDS.
ANOTHER week, another loss to Cronulla. After last night's dismal showing against the Cowboys, it's time to take aim and vote off another poor soul from Sharks Den Survivor.
CRONULLA is a club out of control. Once a pillar of discipline, the team has now sunk to depths never before seen in the Sutherland Shire. Last night, the Sharks were well and truly outplayed by their opponents and when they started to fall behind on the scoreboard, they didn?t attempt to lift. Instead, they resorted to stupid tactics and cheap shots and only succeeded to dig themselves further into a hole begun by South Sydney?s impeccable form.
IT'S a sad day to be a Cronulla supporter. Having watched South Sydney completely dominate the Sharks in an ill-disciplined effort, players are simply lining up to be voted off Sharks Den Survivor this week.
IT only took three rounds, but Cronulla have finally posted a win on the competition table. Last night's game was a messy affair, punctuated by moments of brilliance.
IN a scrappy game against Manly, Cronulla showed patches of brilliance amid a quagmire of errors. Nevertheless, some players were outstanding for the Sharks and others continue to prove their critics wrong.
