Graham confident Sharks will fire
Nines skipper Wade Graham spoke with Sharks TV as he and fellow club Captains gathered at Auckland's Aotea Square on Friday morning.
Asked of the calibre of talent both he and the squad will be facing at the weekend - not least returning NRL star, Jarryd Hayne of the Gold Coast Titans - Graham remained confident the Sharks will show their best.
"[Hayne's] certainly a superstar of the game, he's big, he's strong, he's fast. They'll be tough tomorrow morning," Graham said.
"But I know that if our boys play well, we'll go alright."
Graham also spoke of the mix of youth and experience in the team, as well as the young Sharks set to show their wares at the weekend.
