The Sharks have been forced to make two changes to their team to play Souths on Monday night, with the Fifita twins David and Andrew both unavailable due to injury and suspension.

David suffered a fracture to his fibula and will miss four to six weeks, while Andrew was charged with a grade three dangerous throw in the game against Newcastle and while he will challenge the grading at a judiciary hearing tomorrow night, is set to miss at least two games, up to a maximum of six.

Hard running prop Sam Tagataese comes into the starting side in place of Andrew, while Jayson Bukuya and Tinirau Arona make up an extended bench with one of the pair likely to replace David in the Sharks 17.

Other than those changes forced upon him, Flanagan has stuck solid with the team which beat Newcastle last Friday, with youngsters Valentine Holmes and Jack Bird retained at fullback and five eighth respectively after impressive displays at their last two outings.

The Sharks will be looking for three wins in succession as they attempt to rebound from a slow start to the 2015 season when they tackle the defending premiers, who will be equally determined after going down to the North Queensland Cowboys last night.

The match at Remondis Stadium is scheduled for a 7.00pm kick off on Monday night, with the NYC match at 4.45pm and gates opening at 4.30pm.
