Both teams make their way onto the field. Most are wearing beanies. Players are heading to different areas of the ground to give away the beanies they are wearing out onto the field.

Tarantosaurus Tip: Well I was wrong last week when it came to Newcastle v Canberra, but you know, I have a good feeling about the Cowboys tonight. The sharks are a team that would continue to perform week in, week out, whether it's a small or big win, it's still a win. Cowboys will be decent competition, and this game could go either way. I do see Sharks winning by no more than 6 tonight.

Tonight sees the Sharks at home, against the Cowboys!

Welcome to Round 11 and the Beanies for Brain Cancer round!
