* The Raiders have named Jack Wighton (shoulder charge) ahead of his trip to the judiciary on Tuesday night. Zac Santo has been promoted from NSW Cup to train with the top squad and looms as Wighton’s replacement, despite not being named. Junior Paulo (back) returns at starting prop, relegating Paul Vaughan to 18th man. Jarrod Croker (corked thigh), Shannon Boyd (elbow) and Jordan Rapana (cork) all came off for precautionary reasons last week and have been named.

* Joseph Paulo (knee) is out. Gerard Beale shifts back to the bench and Ricky Leutele starts in the centres. Kurt Capewell comes in as 18th man. Chris Heighington (concussion) must prove his fitness. Michael Ennis is free to play after escaping sanction for a shoulder charge.

What a game. Canberra had it shot and only had to go on. But ... they didn't.

Full marks to Cronulla. They held on and really performed.

My son was at this game and was texting me. Its a shocking place to watch footie at.

But - although he favoured Canberra said it was an awesome game.

I've been looking forward to this game all week, and it didn't disappoint. A fantastic contest.

I hope Josh Hodgson is OK.

Good game to watch although over zealousness led to a few unnecessary handling errors.
The Sharks held against the Raiders big men who had the sharks on the rack in the first half.
Sharks got back into the game to take a hard fought win because the Raiders persisted with one out running and not using their back line enough towards the end of the game.
