Sharks know the Cowboys are making their run towards an NRL finals berth.
Despite beating one of the favourites for the NRL title this season in the form of the Sydney Roosters last round, Cronulla halfback Jeff Robson says his team have got their work cut out for them this weekend.
Fresh off their 32-22 victory over the tri-colours, the Sharks playmaker says his side knows they have a tough task ahead of them in the form of the underrated Cowboys.
Having won their last four games in a row, with the smallest margin by 12 points, the Cowboys have jammed their foot in the finals door as they cling to eighth place going into round 25.
A fact Robson said his teammates are well aware off as they try and edge up one place higher to an all-important top four sport, which would give them a second bite at the cherry in the post season.
