The Panthers recovered from concerning back-to-back defeats to stun the Warriors last start, while the Sharks will be feeling refreshed after having the bye.
With a number of players from both squads potentially backing up from Origin III on Wednesday night at Suncorp Stadium, this looms as the match of the round.
The home side will also be gunning for revenge after Shane Flanagan’s men won a quality round seven encounter 26-22 at Southern Cross Group Stadium back in April.
Key match up: Trent Merrin and Paul Gallen don’t play the same position these days, but they are both classic interchangeable forwards who can slot in anywhere in the pack, except of course at hooker.
The former NSW Origin teammates are known for not taking a backward step and there will be plenty of feeling every time they lock horns.
For the Panthers to win: Dominate the forward battle. The Cronulla pack are fearsome on their day, with the likes of Paul Gallen and Andrew Fifita always keen to lay an early platform in the engine room.
James Fisher-Harris, James Tamouand Trent Merrin need to match their enthusiasm and ferocity from the opening set of six.
