The Illawarra Cutters travel to challenge local rivals the Cronulla Sharks at Remondis Stadium, Cronulla on Saturday.
The Cutters take on one of last year’s grand finalist’s having played out to a draw the last time the pair met last season.
The Cutters have made a few changes to the team named previously against the New Zealand Warriors last round.
Rory O’Brien comes into the starting side for the injured Matt Groat while Kyle Eather comes onto the bench at the expense of Joel Gardner.
The Sharks, who also feature Melbourne Storm players, features a strong line-up of players with first-grade experience who have had a strong start to the season in their own right.
Having won the first two games of the year, the Sharks are looking to continue their good form at home.
The Cutters are still looking for their first win after an opening round loss to Wests Tigers and a draw across the Tasman.
They have shown already this season that they are more than capable of playing good football if structure within the ranks is maintained.
