Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan believes the Sharks are turning the table on local rivals St George Illawarra to the point where they could now almost consider themselves the bigger brother.

The southern derby is one of the closest rivalries in the NRL, with the Red V holding a slender 20-19 advantage in the head-to-head record during the merged era.

Matches between the sides have been split in six of the past seven years, a stark contrast to the early days when the Sharks won just on of their first 12 derbies between 1967 and 1971. They trailed St George 40-32 until the 1998 merger with Illawarra.
