HAVING slipped under the NRL's radar, Melbourne Storm plans to be the competition's only unbeaten team after its clash with Cronulla tonight.

Melbourne has clinically disposed of the Dragons, Titans and Warriors in an impressive start to the 2016 season.

It's been the forwards - led by Jesse Bromwich, Kevin Proctor, big improver Jordan McLean and the experienced Dale Finucane - who have given skipper Cameron Smith a great platform to work with.

The Sharks, however, match up well against Melbourne and while they have just one win against the Dragons, they've been competitive in both away losses, against the Cowboys and Manly.

Having young star Jack Bird cleared to play after a heavy head knock against Manly is a big bonus for Cronulla, which will fancy its chances of taking Melbourne on up the middle.

The highlight will be the clash of long-standing No.9 rivals Smith and Shark Michael Ennis, both super competitive and key cogs to their team's attacks.
