Sharks vs Broncos match preview

The Sharks are battling Gold Coast and, to a lesser extent, Canberra for 8th place and a place in the NRL finals. All 3 sit on 20 points for the season. The Sharks are probably in the box seat, holding a 14-point better Points Differential (PD) over the Titans. 'Probably' because they face the runaway Storm - on a 19-game winning streak - in the final round.

Canberra is way back but not done with yet. The Raiders will probably need to beat New Zealand and the 4th placed Roosters and hope both the Sharks and Titans each drop a game given the huge PD deficit they'd need to make up. The Titans have already lost this round - a 1-point loss to Newcastle on Thursday night.

The Broncos looked set to implode after their capitulation to the Rabbitohs in the middle of June but their form and the future have brightened. Of their 4 losses since, 3 have come to teams inside the 8; going down by 6 points to Penrith (2nd on the ladder after 23 rounds), 8 points to Newcastle (7th) and 1-point to Sydney (4th).

They'll be no pushover for the Sharks.
