    From NRL.com preview of our game

    Sharks after ninth straight

    Cronulla have a shocking overall record against Manly, having won just 19 of 68 games between the bitter rivals. Despite this, they have amazingly won the last eight games straight at Toyota Park between the clubs.

    Double tonne for Noddy

    Brett Kimmorley will play his 200th first grade game this week, having debuted for Newcastle in 1995. Kimmorley has enjoyed stints with the Newcastle Knights, Hunter Mariners, Melbourne Storm and the Northern Eagles.

    Unwanted record

    If Manly are to lose this weekend, it will be their 500th loss since their inception in 1947.

    And this little gem from the Tigers v Bulldogs preview

    "With only two rounds of the premiership remaining after round 24, this is a huge match for both clubs.

    A win for either club would guarantee a top eight spot, while a loss could see them tumble out of the eight altogether."

    I'm sure that the Tigers would be interested to know that their season could be over if the don't win this week. Similarly, the Bulldogs must be excited to know that beating the Tigers will ensure them a spot in the semis.
