Shane Flanagan has named his final 17 to take on the Newcastle Knights today at McDonald Jones Stadium.

 

Jesse Ramien will make his NRL debut, coming into the centres for the injured Jack Bird with Ramien becoming Shark number 213.

 

Kurt Capewell will move into the back row due to Wade Graham not recovering from a leg injury sustained in last weekend’s loss to the Sydney Roosters.
