Cronulla Sharks vs Sydney Roosters Live Stream, TV Channel, Tickets & Preview NRL 2018 Full HD
Both teams will enter this clash with an air of optimism. The home side is coming off a grinding 14-4 triumph versus the Melbourne Storm while the Tricolours were disappointing last start, hammered 30-6 by the red-hot Warriors.
Both teams pride themselves on their physical nature, so expect an arm wrestle from the opening whistle.
Sharks v Roosters, Southern Cross Group Stadium, Friday April 6, 6pm
The selections: Cronulla have named Josh Dugan at fullback, with Valentine Holmes shifting to the wing. Matt Moylan will partner Chad Townsend in the halves.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson has resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes following last Saturday’s below par 80-minute performance, sticking with the same 17 players.
The key match-up: Matt Moylan v Luke Keary. The Sharks pivot will be the first to admit he hasn’t set the world on fire at his new club, but form is temporary and class is permanent.
He faces a huge task to outplay Keary, who is already being touted as an option to wear the No.6 jersey for the NSW Blues come early June such has been his vintage early season form.
