Sharks prop Sam Tagataese was in the chair today for the mid week media call, with the big front rower acknowledging his team will need to be at their best if they hope to come home from the Gold Coast with the points on Saturday. 

Tagataese was asked about the teams preparations without their Origin stars and the personal challenge for him in coming up against his former club. 

See what Tagataese had to say, now playing on Sharks TV.
