Sharks looking to gain points

The Sharks will be aiming to make it two in a row after they picked up both points against the Canterbury Bulldogs in round six.

They've only won twice so far this campaign but will be looking to improve their points tally off the back of last week's strong performance.

20:1118 days ago

No Turbo for Sea Eagles

The Sea Eagles will have to try to deal without star-man Tom  'Turbo' Trbojevic in Sunday's match.

He hobbled off injured in last weekend's game away to the Canberra Raiders, although he managed to score a try early on

20:1018 days ago

The Sharks will be looking to use Sunday's game as an opportunity to move towards the top eight, currently on four points.

Manly, however, will want to consolidate their position in qualification for the finals series, on eight points and in seventh place
