Cronulla Sharks v New Zealand Warriors

That's it from Remondis Stadium. Thanks for joining us. We'll also be blogging Penrith-Canberra and Dragons-Rabbitohs so stay locked on smh.com.au.

Take a bow

So the Sharks finally get their first win of 2014 on their fifth attempt. And they did it in some style.

"Obviously not good enough. We knew they would rock up today and we didn't match it." Warrior Dane Nielsen.

"Good to be back. It's been a tough four weeks on the sidelines. Good to come back and get a win." Cronulla's Jeff Robson.

The fulltime whistle blows just before Johnson takes the kick. It's successful, but it's otherwise been a dark day for the visitors. 37-6 is your final score.

With 60 seconds left Vatuvei and the Warriors finally get a consolation try, diving over in the corner following a sweeping move.

Looks like he'll fall just short, but still an impressive effort.

Dying minutes here. The Warriors will want to get straight to the airport and forget this game ever happened.

37-0 to the Sharks. What a difference a week makes.

What. A. Try. Nathan Stapleton take a bow, although Carney was the creator. The latter with the intercept 5m out from his own tryline, scampers well over halfway and finds Stapleton in support for his fourth of the afternoon. Nothing less than the Sharks deserved.

Carney rubs a little extra salt into the Warriors' wound with a cheeky field goal. 31-0 Sharks.

Probably a decent prediction, considering how unpredictable the comp has been this year for the tipsters.

Wade Graham tries a chip over the top, but it just bounces into touch in front of an unmarked Jonathan Wright. Let off for the Warriors.

And no try is the ruling. The Warriors continue to draw blanks. That was as close as they've come, so I guess that's something.

Manu Vatuvei crashes over after Thomas Leuluai's grubber. Doubts over the grounding so we're going upstairs.
