NRL Team List - Sharks v Raiders

Two of the NRL’s in-form teams meet on Thursday night with the Sharks travelling to Canberra to tackle the Raiders.

Both teams are coming off impressive last start wins, with the Sharks dominant for an hour of their match against the Eels before clocking off somewhat late in the contest and the Raiders scoring a 28-0 win over the Wests Tigers.

In the end run however the Sharks still ran out convincing 42-22 winners in their game with the Eels and head to Canberra ready for the challenge the Raiders will present.

Sharks coach John Morris has brought State of Origin centre Josh Morris back into his team to play the Raiders, with Josh Dugan moving to the wing and Aaron Gray to the extended reserves bench.

Jayden Brailey will also miss the game at GIO Stadium, with the hooker to be replaced by younger brother Blayke in the only other change to the Sharks side.

Kurt Capewell has retained his starting position in jersey 12, with Wade Graham, in his second game back after a nine-month injury layoff, selected to begin the match on the bench.

Shaun Johnson, out since injuring his hamstring in Brisbane in round seven, is another big name to be included on the extended reserves list.

The Sharks travel to Canberra on Wednesday ahead of their game on Thursday night which is scheduled for a 7.50pm kick-off at GIO Stadium.

The Sharks 21-man squad is listed below.
