The race for the NRL minor premiership is back on after Cronulla stunned the ladder-leading Sydney Roosters 32-22 in Monday night's big match in Sydney.

Thumped 40-0 by the Roosters just five weeks ago, the Sharks completed a remarkable turnaround in front of their home fans, setting up the victory with a brilliant first half when they ran away to a 26-0 lead.

Conceding 30 points for the first time this season, the Roosters are now ahead of their arch-rivals South Sydney ononly on points-differential - setting up a potentially epic final round meeting in just under a fortnight.

After round 24 the Warriors are one of five teams sharing eighth place on 24 points.
