Cronulla Sharks Tips

The Cronulla Sharks NRL team announced its’ starting 28-man squad for the second round of 2024 pre-season matches. Craig Fitzgibbon (sharks coach) has almost a full-strength team heading into this match. 

Coming off a heavy loss last weekend the Sharks are adding Will Kennedy, Jesse Ramien, Ronaldo Mulitalo, Blayke Brailey, and Toby Rudolf to the squad after giving the players a rest after last weekend’s match.

Cronulla Sharks are the hot favorite with nearly all bookies backing them for the win.

Canterbury Bulldogs Tips

The Canterbury Bulldogs looked good in their last pre-season match. They have announced this week’s starting 28-man squad. 

The team ran the ball up hard and tackled low last week. They look to be running a sliding defence which requires a little extra awareness and fitness. 

If the Bulldogs can tighten their offense and reduce mistakes when in possession they could upset the bookies with a win.
