TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS
Scored by Stewart Mills. Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.
HOW did he do that? Pomeroy draws two defenders out wide and somehow finds Mills who SOMEHOW stays in. Townsend takes over kicking duties and from the sideline - he's nailed it!

The teams today play for the Steve Rogers Cup. Cronulla going through their final warm-up, wearing their traditional blue & white and black hoops shirt with CSFC emblazoned across the front. Manly are getting their last pre-match words from coach Geoff Toovey, their jerseys today a variation of their regular maroon strip with the names of all players on the stomach, and all the versions of their club logo across the sleeves and on the back of the strip.

Heritage Round resumes for Sunday footy at Brookvale - a huge one for the Sharks who are floundering after a promising start. Manly will be keen to keep pace with Melbourne and South Sydney, and as such are deserved favourites.
