Usually a game that attracts a large and boisterous home crowd, the Sharks and Storm are set to go head to head in an empty Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday night when the two teams meet in a highly anticipated round two clash.
However while the stadium lock out this weekend will take away the noise and some of the excitement of a regular Sharks and Storm confrontation, the intensity is likely to be no different, with the two fierce rivals keen to earn the two competition points as well as bragging rights with a win this weekend.
The Sharks fell just short in their round one match up against Souths, a forward pass in the 78th minute for what could have been the match-winning play, denying the Cronulla side a gutsy comeback victory.
While their execution at times let them down, the Sharks showed determination and resilience to battle back from a 22-8 deficit, with coach John Morris pleased with the effort shown but obviously disappointed with the final result.
With no new injury concerns and those sidelined for round one still unlikely to be fit for Saturday night, the Sharks have named the same list 1-20, with Josh Dugan the one new name in the 21-man squad.
Dugan has been named on the extended reserves bench in jersey 21.
