Friday, July 31, 7.55 PM, Round 12, Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Brisbane Broncos take on Cronulla Sharks NRL Match Preview
Sharkies coming off a controversial win over the Dragons in round 11 and are now sitting in seventh place on the ladder, another big win here against the Broncos could see them climbing higher, lots of motivation for the Sharkies but not a lot for the Broncos who are still in the same boat and who are still rediscovering themselves as a team and positionally which makes them a little dangerous because life is like a box of chocolates and you don’t know which Broncos your gonna get!

The last time these two teams met the Sharks at home lost to the Broncos 22-24. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, 40 matches played between the Sharks and the Broncos favour the Broncos winning 25, all other statistics indicate the Sharks score and concede a lot less on an average but at this venue, the Broncos win 61% of the time opposed to the Sharks just 33%.
Cronulla Sharks for the win.
