Cronulla have the top 4 in their sights and can plie the pressure on St George with a win against Newcastle here. The Sharks are level on points with the fourth-placed Dragons and are separated by a points difference of just 17. The Knights are without Dally M contender Kalyn Ponga which could harm their chances but are boosted by the return of Connor Watson at five-eighth. With little on the line for the Knights, they can play with freedom but the loss of Ponga might be too much to overcome, especially with the Sharks hunting a top 4 spot and they will win their third game in a row here.
