The in-from Cronulla Sharks  and Canberra Raiders  lock horns at Sharks Stadium on Sunday afternoon, with both sides coming into the match off the back of two straight wins. The Sharks recent success is even more impressive given that skipper Paul Gallen has been sidelined by injury, and he misses out again this weekend with Shane Flanagan naming an unchanged team to that which scored a 30-6 victory over the Tigers in round nine. The Raiders have also retained the same squad after trouncing Newcastle 44-14 last week.

While the Sharks may have been flattered by a big winning margin against woeful Wests last Friday night, Canberra has been very good in beating the Knights and Storm in the past fortnight. Since losing three of their opening four matches of the current campaign, they have won four of their past five and have moved up to seventh on the ladder. The Raiders also won both clashes between these sides last year and can continue their fine form with their second win away from Canberra Stadium this season. Canberra Raiders by 8
