The Sharks welcome back Beau Ryan and Anthony Tupou for the game against the Panthers. The pair will be playing their first games of the 2014 season. 

Ryan comes into the team for Blake Ayshford, while Tupou is in the 17 with Bryce Gibbs out with a hand injury. Ryan goes onto the wing, with Jonathan Wright moving to the centres. 

In another change, Michael Lichaa replaces an injured Isaac De Gois. 

With Gibbs ruled out Siosaia Vave moves from the bench into the starting team, with Tupou to also begin the match, with Chris Heighington going back to the interchange bench. 

The Panthers are 1-17 as per selected.
