Ruled out of the match with a shoulder complaint, Sharks centre Ricky Leutele will not feature in tonight's match with the Roosters.

In his place, Gerard Beale comes in to the starting side, and will partner the returning Sosaia Feki on the left edge.

In other news, Paul Gallen will make his return from injury as expected, while Valentine Holmes lines up on his familiar right wing having overcome a minor ankle issue earlier in the week.
