The Sydney Roosters will face the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks for the first time in 2020 on Saturday night for the second last match of the regular season.
Both sides will be playing finals football in 2020, which makes Saturday's match a good challenge as they prepare for their respective runs.
Round 19 will mark the first time that these two sides have gone toe-to-toe since Round 5 of the 2019 NRL Telstra Premiership season, marking more than 17 months since their last encounter.
While the Roosters are running hot off a big win against the Newcastle Knights, the Sharks are buzzing from an exciting win against the New Zealand Warriors.
Both sides know how to turn on the razzle dazzle in attack, making Saturday an exciting match-up between the third and eighth placed teams on the NRL ladder.
