Sharks Coach Shane Flanagan has named his side to take on the Eels in just over an hour's time.

Despite training throughout the week, winger Valentine Holmes will not play in tonight's match, with the Sharks taking precaution with a hamstring injury picked up in last week's win over the Warriors. 

In his place, Gerard Beale is expected to fill the void on the right wing, with regular left-edge centre Ricky Leutele to start alongside the returning Sosaia Feki.

As per recent weeks, Matt Prior will start in jersey 16, with Sam Tagataese to play his 150th NRL match from the interchange bench.

Meanwhile, the Eels will run out 1-17 as per the match day programme.
