All four clubs have injury decisions to make leading into their must‑win clashes in week two of the NRL Premiership finals.
Cronulla have found their replacement for injured back‑rower Wade Graham, while Penrith's Viliame Kikau is one of a host of players getting through games with pain.
South Sydney have injury clouds over two of their key men but the Dragons, who went through the season relatively injury‑free, have been hit the hardest in recent weeks with Gareth Widdop's year likely over and question marks over a number of players.
The Dragons will play the Rabbitohs at 9.40pm Saturday while the Sharks will play the Panthers at 9.40pm Friday.
Meanwhile the Roosters alongside with the Melbourne Storm have qualified for the NRL Preliminary Finals.
The winner of the Sharks and Panthers match will play the Melbourne Storm while the winner of the Dragons and Rabbitohs game will play the Roosters.
