How to watch Brisbane Broncos vs Cronulla Sharks NRL live and match preview
The Sharks head to Brisbane to face the last-placed Broncos hoping to make it 5 wins in a row.
Winning 4 in a row has thrust Cronulla into the top 8 and made the Sharks a real chance to play finals. For their opponents this week, the Brisbane Broncos, it's a very different story.
The Broncs have lost their last 4 and were embarrassed by Souths 46-0 at Suncorp Stadium last outing. In his first year at the helm, the future of coach Kevin Walters is already reportedly under threat.
When is Brisbane vs Cronulla?
This match kicks off at 2pm AEST on Sunday 4 July at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

Broncos vs Sharks match preview
In their last meeting, the Sharks beat Brisbane by 10 points at Suncorp back in round 12 last season. That ended a 6-game losing streak against the Broncos that stretched back to 2017.
Nothing quells disharmony quite like winning and that's exactly what Walters and the Broncos will be hoping for on Sunday. Walters looks to be under immense pressure to keep his job, despite being in his first season in charge.
But with their last 4 losses coming at an average of 31 points, the worst defensive record and second lowest points for record in the NRL – not to mention off-field issues as long as your arm – the Broncos need a miracle and a sudden loss of form from Cronulla if they're to be any hope. We can't see it.
