Challenges, Warriors facing many this season but kudos to them for continuing on, their performance so far this season may even reflect their challenges, this round the Warriors face a Cronulla Sharks that were just consumed by the Panthers, no doubt the Sharkies will be hungry this round and the Warriors might be the perfect antidote to fix their emotions about the previous round, either way, this round is a test the Sharks and possibly a learning experience for the Warriors.
