KEY MATCHUPS IN THE ROUND SEVEN NRL CLASH BETWEEN SYDNEY ROOSTERS AND CRONULLA SHARKS:

JAMES MALONEY v TODD CARNEY: Both players are key to their teams fortunes and their lack of form so far has also corresponded with some disappointing performances from either side. NSW incumbent five-eighth Maloney needs to lift his game to ensure he is in the Blues side when the interstate clash resumes next month, while some big efforts from Carney could seem him surge into reckoning. But before that they need to get their teams a win. Both sides have struggled for points this year; big efforts from Carney and Maloney can changed that.

JARED WAEREA-HARGREAVES v ANDREW FIFITA: a true heavyweight clash between two of the best props in the game. Fifita's off-field dramas have been well documented and apart from a big effort in Cronulla's sole win over the Warriors he has been quiet on the field.

JWH has again battled suspension, but made the most metres and most hitups of any forward in last weeks Roosters v Eels match. Both sides are heavily dependent on the go-forward the two players generate.

BOYD CORDNER v WADE GRAHAM: Two of the most promising young back-rowers in the game, albeit with differing games. Cordner is a fantastic hole runner and bruising defender while Graham can offer more of a ball-playing role but he can hit a hole well too. Cordner has been slightly below his fantastic form of 2013, while Graham has been one of the few shining lights in a forgettable year for the Sharks so far.
