Cronulla captain Brett Kimmorley believes the Sharks are still capable of finishing in the National Rugby League top four despite their winless start to the season.
Cronulla is the only side in the NRL yet to register a victory following Saturday night's defeat at the hands of Melbourne - their second this season to the unfancied Storm.
But Kimmorley - clinging to last year's 11-match winning streak for inspiration - is still optimistic the finals, and a top four spot, are within reach. He says the side, despite its ordinary form, still has belief in their ability.
The Sharks lost seven games early last season but eventually found their feet, easily making the finals series and going within one win of the grand final.
