PORT Kembla will face a stern test on Sunday when they host the Shellharbour City Sharks at Noel Mulligan Oval.
The two sides are on opposite ends of the scale, with the Blacks on the bottom, while the second-placed Sharks are the only team who can take the minor premiership away from Warilla-Lake South.
There is no doubt the Blacks have been big improvers in 2014 and they certainly showed plenty of heart in their loss to the Nowra-Bomaderry Jets last week.
While we have seen some upsets this season, it is more likely the Blacks will face another tough day at the office.
The Sharks should win and win comfortably as they look to carry their good run of form into the semi finals.
