You're right, Nicholas. No side will want to face them - although they have been unimpressive today - but the key is actually getting inside the eight after the terrible start to the campaign they endured.
13 minutes left and the Sharks edge into the Warriors' 20.
They kick on the fourth, Hurrell deals with it but tosses it to Locke and possesion is lost inside the 10. Oh dear.
The Sharks can put away this game now.
But now Carney spills the ball and Mateo grabs possession on the 20.
11 left, the Warriors take the second tackle on the Sharks' 40 after a nice run from Mannering. Fair to say they have to score here.
Konrad Hurrell does what Konrad Hurrell does best, busting his way through a couple of would-be tacklers on the right touchline to go over in the corner.
Johnson threw a nice cut-out pass and Hurrell's massive frame does the best. He then gives the trademark kiss to Mrs Hurrell back in Tonga.
Johnson misses the kick and it's a 10-point ball game.
The Warriors still need two tries with 10 minutes on the clock, but they have hope now.

Yikes. Another error from the Warriors, as Johnson puts down the ball on his own 40.
Sloppy from Johnson as he appeared to be thinking about what to do with the ball before he had it,
Sharks' scrum from the 40 with a chance to close it out.
Only one visiting side - the Rabbitohs - have won at Mt Smart this season, but the Sharks are about to become the second.
Although it's their turn to squander possession and the Warriors take over from their 20.
Eight left, still trail by 10.
Tackle three for the Warriors on the Sharks' 30.
10 out now on tackle five.
We have ourselves a ball game.
Johnson's bomb to the left is inch-perfect and Manu Vatuvei jumps over Stapleton to grab possession and dot down in the corner for his second try.
Six points in it, big kick from the sideline for Johnson.
Nails it. Four points in it.
Can the Warriors pull off a miracle?
Momentum is well and truly on their side now, and they begin from the 20 with five minutes left.
Tackle three on their own 40 near midfield.
Wow, big squander by the Warriors there.
They looked set to score from some Shaun Johnson magic but the halfback tossed the last pass over the sideline when the try seemed very possible.
Johnson started from the 40, got down to the 15, but his pass couldn't find Hurrell, who would've proved extremely difficult to stop.
