Matt Prior, one of the Sharks form forwards through the first 10 rounds of the 2016 season, will miss the Manly match after suffering a minor knee strain in the victory over the Knights last Sunday.

Prior was injured during the first half of the 62-0 romp in Newcastle and failed to return during the second period, with his knee problem not a long term issue but deemed serious enough to see him sit out this weekend’s clash.

In Prior’s place comes Jayson Bukuya, the backrower returning after a week on the sidelines due to suspension, with Coach Shane Flanagan naming a five-man bench.

Along with Bukuya, Ricky Leutele and Chris Heighington have been selected on the bench, with Flanagan also including Joseph Paulo and David Fifita, with a decision as the final make up of his 17 to be determined following the Captain’s run on Friday morning.

Otherwise it is an unchanged Sharks line-up, one which will be bristling with confidence following their demolition of the Knights last Sunday.

The match will also represent the final opportunity for those Sharks players in contention for NSW selection to push their cause ahead of the naming of the Origin teams next week.

The Sharks v Manly match is scheduled for a 7.30pm kick-off at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Saturday night.

The NYC match will get underway at 5.15pm, with gates to open at 5.30pm.
