Jillaroo Allana Ferguson returns and skipper Ruan Sims steps out for her second game of the year after recovering from injury as the Sharks Women’s team play their third match, second at home for 2017, when they host the Newcastle Knights at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Saturday.

To be played immediately after fulltime in the NRL match, the girls will be high on confidence after two big wins in their previous matches this season.

While Ferguson will add organisation and flair in the middle of the field for the Sharks, Maddi Studdon again shapes as the go to girl with ball in hand, with the NSW and Australian representative outstanding for the Cronulla side in their two matches so far.

Also impressive has been centre Shontelle Stowers, while Corban McGregor at the back has been hard to handle for the opposition defences.

The Sharks will look to continue their winning run against a Knights team which arrives as somewhat of an unknown quantity.

The match kicks off shortly after full time of the NRL clash (around 5.00pm) and for those fans not at the ground, will be shown via livestream on the Sharks website.

The Sharks team is listed below.
