With a thumping win over the Roosters, the Sharks have again put their case forward as a legitimate chance of going back-to-back.
In an interesting stat, the Sharks remain undefeated on the road, and have only let slip their five losses while at home.
Considering what a fortress Shark Park has been - especially last year.
James Maloney was again faultless with the boot, knocking over eight from eight.
The Sharks dominated with 61 per cent possession compared to the Roosters' 39 per cent.
Cronulla also managed 1837 all run metres, with the Roosters at 1186.
With the final score 12 - 44, it seems as though the effort of defending so much took it out of the Roosters, with the side making 350 tackles compared to the Sharks 227.
