Match Preview
It depends on which Knights team turns up to play. If the Knights who played against the Panthers turns up then this will be a really good match. If they bad team turns up, well the Sharks will strike on any weakness. If it slows down to a grind, the Sharks love that and will take the win.

Key Matchup
Andrew Fifita v Herman Ese'ese. If the Sharks are to make any noise in the finals they need Fifita to play at a consistently high level. After they were battered by the Sharks pack back in round 12, Ese'ese needs to lead from the front.

Jeremy's Prediction
With Ponga out, I think the Knights will struggle against an experienced Sharks pack who are smell blood in the water headed into the finals.  Sharks by 13+
