Cowboys vs Sharks match preview

This top 4 clash is clearly shaping as the match of the round with the competition's surprise packets Cowboys vs the in-form Sharks.

Cowboys vs Sharks

The Cowboys will have a few players on the backup from State of Origin game 3 from only 2 days prior.

The Sharks have threatened around the lower part of the 8 in recent years but appear to be taking another step forward.

They are a bit lighter on the Origin front, which could freshen them up a touch for this clash against a team with a 6-2 home record. Significantly, the Cowboys have won their last 5 at the venue and we think they'll just squeeze through vs the Sharks and strengthen their claims for a home final.
