Cronulla extended their lead just on the stroke of half time as Sione Katoa came up with a stunning put down in the corner.
Nicho Hynes attempted to convert but extremely windy conditions made it difficult. Before he lined up the kick he turned to the sideline and said “is there any point?” according to reporter Lara Pitt.
Knights enforcer Tyson Frizell was also celebrating a milestone — his 200th NRL game. However his night was cut short, leaving the field in the 54th minute with a hamstring injury.
Not long after losing Frizell to an injury, things went form bad to worse for the Knights when winger Dominic Young was sin-binned for lifting Ronaldo Mulitalo’s leg in a tackle.
The Sharks sealed the game with two more tries in the final 12 minutes.
Siosifa Talakai scored a well-deserved four-pointer off the back of a Mulitalo break, while the two combined again seven minutes later in the lead up to a Will Kennedy try.
