Late Mail - Update - Dugan ruled out

LATE UPDATE: In a late change to the Sharks line up, Josh Dugan has been ruled out after suffering a hamstring injury in the warm up, with youngster Ronaldo Mulitalo set to take his place.

The New Zealand-born Mulitalo, who signed a contract upgrade into the Sharks top 30 just yesterday, will be making his NRL debut.

Mulitalo is 19-years of age.

Otherwise the Sharks side is as selected on Tuesday

 

There will be no surprises tonight with the final make up of the Sharks team to play the Broncos, with the 17 as selected on Tuesday set to take to the field at Suncorp Stadium tonight. 

The Sharks were reporting no injury concerns and coach John Morris has resisted the urge to make changes and blood youngsters Ronaldo Mulitalo and Billy Magnolias, both named in the 19-man squad and both in Brisbane with the NRL group, for what shapes as a difficult assignment later tonight. 

In a change to the team which came from behind to beat the Panthers last week, Scott Sorensen will start in place of the suspended Briton Nikora, with Jayson Bukuya, after missing the Penrith game with a thumb injury, returning to the interchange bench. 

Young fullback Will Kennedy is set to play his second NRL game, while Josh Dugan will again play on the right wing inside teenage centre Bronson Xerri.

The Sharks and Broncos match kicks off at 7.35pm, the Brisbane side expected to be at full strength with return of Tevita Pangai and Matt Lodge.
