Before jumping on a bus headed for Sydney International airport and ultimately a Qantas flight bound for Auckland, coach Shane Flanagan addressed the media at Southern Cross Group Stadium today.

Flanagan answered a variety of questions in relation to the game against the Warriors, included amongst them the selection puzzle surrounding a replacement for James Maloney and who might fill that void on Friday night. 

The Maloney injury, the Sharks run into the finals, the threat the Warriors pose despite being without Shaun Johnson and the recent performances of the veteran trio of Paul Gallen, Luke Lewis and Chris Heighington was also spoken about is Flanagan's press conference.
