The Sharks return home following a successful road trip to Melbourne for what will be Jonathan Thurston's final game in Sydney before his retirement at season's end.
However while sentiment will be with the classy Cowboy, the Sharks will be out to spoil the farewell parade in backing up their victory over the Storm last weekend.
It took a resilient defensive effort in the second half to hold the Storm at bay, with Sharks coach Shane Flanagan sure to be looking for more of the same against a North Queensland team battling to avoid the wooden-spoon.
The Sharks came out of the game with a couple of minor injury concerns, with Wade Graham missing the second half at AAMI Park with a knee issue, Matt Prior and Josh Dugan came from the field for head injury assessments.
The trio have been named however to take their place in the team to play the Cowboys on Saturday, with their status to be confirmed as the week progresses.
The Sharks and Cowboys match is scheduled for a 7.30pm kick off at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Saturday night, with the 21-man Sharks squad listed below.
