To watch Sharks vs Knights you're going to need a subscription service. You've only got 3 options to pick from, which are Kayo Sports, Foxtel IQ or Foxtel Now. Given Foxtel IQ requires a hardware to be sent out to your house it isn't a realistic option this close to the game.

Thankfully, both Kayo and Foxtel Now come with free trials and you can watch straight away. We'd recommend Kayo over Foxtel Now as it's a far better streaming app, cheaper, longer trial period and has special viewing features just for sports. You can see a comparison of Foxtel and Kayo here.

Who will win Sharks vs Knights?

This is one of the more fascinating contests in the early rounds and one that will tell us quite a bit about both of these teams.

The Sharks enter the contest in winning form, but the Knights will also be concerned this week about dealing with the Mitch Barnett fall out, after his brain explosion led to a report against the Panthers.

His send off cost them any chance of causing an upset and they'll feel that absence again this week. The Sharks should make it 3 in a row in a tight and entertaining contest.
