Sharks Half Chad Townsend spoke to the media on Tuesday to talk of his return to the Club against the Cowboys, and this week's local derby versus the Dragons.

Townsend scored in his first outing since returning from the Warriors, and said he is hopeful that the side can return to winning ways this Sunday.

"It's going to be a huge game, the local derby means to much to us," Townsend said.

"We're looking forward to our Members and fans to come down this weekend and to support us in our first home game. Hopefully they can pack out Shark Park.

"The Members and fans love these games ... it's one of our biggest rivalry games, we want a big crowd down. We're looking forward to playing in a big game."
