After a week off to rest and recuperate the Sharks are back in action on Sunday when they travel to ANZ Stadium to take on the Bulldogs.
Coming off a last start loss to the Raiders, the Sharks will be desperate for the two points to consolidate their place inside the top eight as the season now moves past the half way mark and into the business end.
With the Sharks missing front rower Andrew Fifita due to suspension, coach John Morris has opted to move the ever-improving Braden Hamlin-Uele into his starting side.
Interestingly, the name of Aaron Woods has been included in the 21-man squad list, with the representative prop sidelined since breaking his foot back in round four. Woods still needs to get through the training week before being considered for Sunday’s game.
Jayden Brailey also returns after missing the Raiders game with a knee injury, while Wade Graham is set to back up after playing a leading role in the NSW victory in State of Origin game 2.
The Sharks and Bulldogs are scheduled to meet at 4.05pm on Sunday, with the Sharks 21-man squad listed below.
