TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS
Scored by Sosaia Feki. Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.

And to add insult to injury, the Sharks score again, through Sosaia Feki - a bit of a dummy, and he finishes it nicely. Gordon lines up from the sideline to take the kick, and puts it between the uprights.

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 30-6

Time almost out for the Tigers.

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 24-6

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 24-6

TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS
Scored by Sosaia Feki. Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.

The referee has awarded a try, and there wasn't enough conclusive evidence to take it off him. Feki scores. Some of the more inexperienced Tigers' outside backs are really struggling with the condition. Gordon lines up from 2m in from the sideline, and puts it over the posts.

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 24-6

Video referee decision pending!

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 18-6

TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS
Scored by Jayson Bukuya. Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.

Another try to the Sharks - yet another brilliant bomb, which the Tigers can't handle. Bukuya gets underneath it, picks up the loose ball and scores the try. Gordon adds the extras.

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 18-6

TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS
Scored by Jeff Robson. Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.

Bit amateur here, Beau Ryan batting the kick for touch back infield, and the Tigers have the ball.

TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS
Scored by Andrew Fifita. Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.

Fifita scores, and Gordon lines the kick up 15m from the sideline. He hits it sweetly, and it's over the black dot. The Sharks look to be warming into this game.

Spence leaves the field with a cut on his head. He's looking out his earhole at the moment. Absolutely scrambled.

Wests Tigers 6-0

Spence down for the Tigers, looks like a head knock - he tried to get up but fell back down again.

Wests Tigers 6-0

Wests Tigers are looking good here so far - they look confident and enthusiastic - a far cry from the last few weeks.

Wests Tigers 6-0

TRY WESTS TIGERS
Scored by Matt Utai. Conversion attempt by Curtis Sironen successful.

Beautiful backline movement from the Tigers - Sironen holds the ball up nicely, and all the outside backs combine to put Matt Utai over in the corner. Sironen converts the try, after bouncing it off the upright.

A nothing kick from the Sharks at the end of the set - with no chasers following through on Carney's kick.

Sironen kicks high looking for his chasers, and Reddy comes up with it, and then puts it on the toe, but the Tigers can't capitalize. Matt Utai did manage to trap the Tigers in goal though - line drop out.

Kick off in a few minutes here tonight. The Cronulla Sharks will be buoyed by their golden point win over the Knights last weekend, while the Tigers will be looking to not be embarrassed too badly, despite their massive injury toll.
