NRL Team List – Sharks v Eels

After their successful trip to Bathurst where they came away with an impressive victory against the Panthers, the Sharks will be looking for two wins on the trot when they host the Parramatta Eels at Remondis Stadium on Saturday.

With just Matt Prior missing through suspension from the team which took the points last weekend, the Sharks field an almost identical team, with the return of Anthony Tupou the only change.

Ruled out of the Penrith match with hamstring soreness the experienced Tupou has been named on a five player interchange bench, with coach James Shepherd needing to trim one from his 18-man squad before kick off on Saturday.

Club captain Paul Gallen, out of action with a biceps tear that has now been diagnosed as a four-week injury, will again miss the match this week, as well as the Warriors game the following Sunday,and is targeting a round 23 return.

While there were plenty of encouraging signs in the win over the Panthers the Sharks realise that in opposition to an Eels team containing one of the best players in the NRL in fullback Jarryd Hayne, they will need to lift another notch if they hope to register a victory.

Kickoff to the game on Saturday is at 3.00pm at Remondis Stadium with kids 14 and under admitted free of charge.
