Welcome to Saturday afternoon football. Today’s match up sees the Cronulla Sharks taking on the New Zealand Warriors from Remondis Stadium. The Sharks have had an injury ravaged start to the season and although it isn’t panic stations just yet, another loss today will see them already losing touch with the top teams. The Warriors, fresh off an amazing win over the Tigers last week, will be hoping to keep up the momentum with a third straight victory.

This week is also Men of League Heritage Round and a time of year when fans take the time to reminisce about the ‘good old days’. With excitement machines Todd Carney and Shaun Johnson on the field today for the Sharks and Warriors respectively, here’s hoping for a great match up that we can all talk about for years to come.
