Late Mail - Sharks v Storm

The Sharks have made just one change to the team to play the Melbourne Storm, with Grand Final-winning winger Sosaia Feki recalled to the starting 13.

Feki was left out of the team to play Manly after Josh Dugan made his return following a lengthy stint on the sidelines.

He comes into the side in renewing his partnership with Ricky Leutele on the Sharks left hand side, with Feki preferred to youngster Sione Katoa who has bee left out of the team for today's crucial clash.

Otherwise the Sharks team is as selected, with Dugan to play his second game after returning from injury last week in the golden point loss to the Sea Eagles.

Yesterday forward Ava Seumanufagai and young half Kyle Flanagan were taken out of the 21-man squad which was named on Tuesday.

Despite being under an injury cloud, it was expected that Storm Captain Cameron Smith would take his place in the Melbourne team, with his backup Brandon Smith left out of the squad when it was reduced from 21 to 19 players in the 24-hours leading into the match.
