Luke Lewis will be missing from the Sharks side to play the Warriors however in his place Anthony Tupou returns for what will be his first game since suffering a broken jaw back in round nine.

Lewis is set to miss 2-3 weeks with a medial ligament strain but the inclusion of Tupou comes at an opportune time for a Sharks team also missing Andrew and David Fifita for this weekend’s game.

In other changes to the Sharks lime-up, Chris Heighington comes into the team in the front row, while Tinirau Arona and Junior Roqica have been added to the interchange bench.

The Sharks moved into sixth position and past the Warriors and Bulldogs with their narrow win at Belmore and will be looking to further cement their position in the top eight when they take on the New Zealanders on Saturday.

The match is scheduled for a 5.00pm kick-off at Mt Smart Stadium (3.00PM Sydney time).
