The fifth-placed Sharks host the sixth-placed Storm at Remondis Stadium with both teams certain to eyeing off that spot in the top four and two bites at the cherry come finals time.

Following another win over one of the competition heavyweights last Saturday night the Sharks will be in a confident frame of mind come Monday but wary of a Storm outfit which easily won the first meeting this season between the two sides way back in round three.

The Sharks have been forced to make one change, with Sam Tagataese to miss one week due to suspension, his place in the starting side to be taken by Matt Prior, with the former Dragon outstanding in the Cronulla win last Saturday night.

In some good news Luke Lewis has been slated for a return, with his progress at training this week to dictate whether he is able to take the field on Monday night. He has been named in the starting line-up.

The Sharks v Storm match is scheduled for a 7.00pm sharp kick off at Remondis Stadium. There will be no under-20’s fixture on Monday, with gates to open at Remondis at 6.00pm.
