We saw just over a month ago the Sharks put in a stellar performance to down the Bulldogs 26-10 at ANZ stadium on the back of a great game by fullback Nathan Gardner. This time the Sharks get the chance to do it in front of their home crowd.

Paul Gallen is somehow free to play this week after receiving no suspension following a head stomping incident in last week’s loss to the Titans.

The Sharks can no longer make the final 8 but the Bulldogs can. A win is vital as they sit 4 points outside the 8 with 4 games left.

With a win meaning so much more to the doggies tonight it’s hard to go past them. Emotion and pure motivation should get them over the line.

Mike’s Best Bet: $63 on the Bulldogs @ $1.76 (Betfair)

Starting Bank: $2000, Current Bank $2549.39
