NSW Cup Team List - Round 9

After a slow start to their 2014 season the NSW Cup Sharks have bounced back with three victories in succession and following the two points from a bye in round eight have moved into seventh position and within striking distance of the competition leaders.

And they have an opportunity to bridge that gap even further this week when they travel to Ringrose Park to take on the first place Wentworthville Magpies on Saturday afternoon.

In what is a bunched competition table, the Sharks are on 12, just two points behind the Magpies who sit alone at the top on 14.

Much will also be expected this week of Penani Manumalealii, with the Sharks NSW Cup five eighth starring for Samoa in the Pacific Test match against Fiji last Saturday night.

Manumalealii, who scored three tries in the Samoan victory, will be joined in the halves by the experienced Daniel Holdsworth.

Melbourne are sending four players the Sharks way, with fullback Kurt Mann, centre Travis Robinson, prop Dayne Weston and backrower Junior Moors named in the Cronulla side.

Please note the change to the time and venue, the NSW Cup match between the Sharks and Magpies is now scheduled for a 1.00pm kickoff at Henson Park on Saturday afternoon as opposed to what was previously announced.
