Late Mail - Sharks v Panthers

The Sharks will take on the Panthers tonight with the team as per selected on Tuesday and reporting a clean bill of health. 

Stemming from the game against the Rabbitohs last Saturday night, Matt Moylan is out, replaced at fullback by Josh Dugan, which has resulted in something of a backline reshuffle. 

Sosaia Feki returns on the wing after missing the win over Souths last weekend, with Dugan's place at right centre to be filled by Josh Morris, Bronson Xerri is likely to play on the left, with Feki and young gun Ronaldo Mulitalo on the wings. 

Mulitalo, who signed a new two-year contract with the Sharks during the week, was impressive in the game against Souths in what was just his fourth top grade appearance. 

With the Sharks 1-17 as named earlier in the week, Sione Katoa and Kyle Flanagan drop off the extended reserves bench. 

The Sharks will be looking to extend their seven-game winning streak against the Panthers in the match that kicks off at 7.50pm.
