Capping off a “perfect” preparation in the eyes of the Coach, Shane Flanagan has named an unchanged line up to that of the team list quoted earlier in the week.

Running out 1-17, the Sharks will head into the match full of confidence after completing a slick final run at the Stadium on Friday afternoon.

Named in jersey 18 on Tuesday, Sam Tagataese will not feature in tonight’s clash, with the front rower expected to be a chance to play so should the Sharks advance through to next week’s Grand Final.

For the Cowboys, Kane Linnett has been ruled a late exclusion, with NYC talent Kalyn Ponga to fill the void on the North Queensland left-edge.
