Cameron McInnes made a beeline behind the ruck and over some loose Canterbury defenders to answer for the Sharks before Jack Williams motored his way over the line to make it 30-4 heading into the sheds.

It was more of the same for Cronulla on the other side of the intermission with Tom Hazelton powering his way over for the first try of his NRL career.

Briton Nikora sliced through a hole off the hip of Hynes to score in his 100th NRL game as the scoreboard started to become an ugly sight for the Bulldogs.


Jesse Ramien swallowed an intercept on the halfway line to race away before Kurtis Morrin muscled his way over for a consolation try for the visitors.

The Sharks looked to destined to pile on some serious points but were held scoreless over the final quarter of the game as they cruised to their eighth win of the season.

Cronulla were dominant in virtually every aspect of the game as the Bulldogs slumped to their fifth loss from their past six.

Fresh off an Origin snub that sparked plenty of chatter, Hynes assisted on a pair of tries and ran for 236 metres with three tackle breaks.

Blayke Brailey assisted on three tries and made 25 tackles whilst Kennedy assisted on a try and ran for 158 metres with five tackle breaks.

The Sharks enjoy a bye next week before hosting the Dragons in a fiery local derby the following Thursday.
