Elimination Final Late Mail

The Sharks are reporting no changes to their 17-man team for today's Elimination Finals clash with the Sea Eagles at Lottoland. 

There were no injury concerns amongst the group as they completed preparations with a Captain's run at PointsBet Stadium yesterday, with Matt Moylan omitted due to continuing hamstring issues, and the suspended Ronaldo Mulitalo, the only top squad players unavailable for the game. 

Josh Dugan again takes over the fullback duties in Moylan's absence, while Aaron Gray has been promoted into the Sharks side in place of Mulitalo. 

For Gray it will be just his sixth game in the top grade in 2019, as for Dugan, he will be familiar with the fullback role after substituting for Moylan who has suffered through a frustrating, injury plagued season to date. 

In the forwards, Andrew Fifita will again start the match, with Aaron Woods to enter the contest from the interchange bench. 

The Sharks v Manly match is scheduled for a 7.50pm kick off at Lottoland, with the winner to progress to week two of the NRL Finals, the loser is eliminated. 

The two teams for tonight's match are listed below.
