RON Costello Oval will be the setting for what is arguably the match of the round, between Shellharbour City and Kiama on Sunday.
Both sides have enjoyed great starts to the season, with narrow losses to Warilla-Lake South the only hiccup so far.
The Knights were basically making up numbers in last year’s finals series, but look like the real deal this season and the Sharks would have to be happy with their form since returning to Group 7.
The Knights have scored more points than any other side so far, with winger Jacob Dolan being the current leading try-scorer, while Kieran Poole and Tom Atkins have had no trouble finding the line either.
The Sharks have been a more defensive team and have shown their ability to grind it out and win in the close games.
Whoever wins will go into outright second place, giving them a bit of a psychological edge and also help them close the gap on the Gorillas at the top of the table.
Both teams have a number of star players who are capable of stepping up and producing the goods in what should be an absolute cracker.
