Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 16-14

72

Jack Bird goes to the line, breaks it, and offloads to Wade Graham, who is tackled 1 metre short of the line. Next play and it looks like the Sharks may have scored! Just going to the bunker...

St George Illawarra Dragons 8-6

35

Massive let off for the Dragons, with Townsend knocking on first pass off the scrum. He just took his eyes off the ball there.

St George Illawarra Dragons 8-6

34

The Sharks again go left on the last. Nightingale cleans up the kick under heavy pressure, but the Dragons knock the ball on next play.
