How to watch Cronulla Sharks vs Sydney Roosters NRL live and match preview
The Sharks host the Roosters in a mid-season blockbuster that could shape the top 8 come the end of the year.
Coming into this Sharks vs Roosters clash, Cronulla has traded wins and losses over the past 5 weeks. Despite that inconsistency, they still sit inside the top 4. Last week they downed the Titans 25-18 in a hard-fought contest away from home.
The Roosters have also been inconsistent, but 2 wins in a row prior to last week's clash with Penrith gave them confidence. However, they were stopped in their tracks in a 32-12 defeat that leaves them seventh coming into this round.
When is Sharks vs Roosters?
This clash in the Indigenous Round gets underway at 7:35pm AEST on Saturday 28 May at PointsBet Stadium, otherwise known as Shark Park in Cronulla, home of the Dharawal people.

Sharks vs Roosters match preview
Both of these teams have produced very similar seasons, with some very good football mixed with some defeats they would not have anticipated.
The Sharks remain in the top 4 and the Roosters are 1 game further back, having been opened up significantly by the Panthers last week who threatened to keep them scoreless.
The Roosters have won the last 6 meetings vs the Sharks and haven't conceded more than 12 points in any of those matches.
This game could ultimately tell us which of these sides is closer to the mark of challenging the top bracket of sides.
We sense the Roosters will squeeze it home narrowly vs the Sharks.
