The Sharks head to the Central Coast for the second time inside a month for a round 10 match against the New Zealand Warriors.
Winners over the Sea Eagles in round seven at the Central Coast Stadium in Gosford, the Sharks will be hoping for a similar result when they tackle the New Zealand side at 2.00pm on Sunday.
The loss of Andrew Fifita to a hamstring strain has forced a change in the Sharks line-up, with Braden Hamlin-Uele to wear the number eight jersey after officially being named in the starting side.
Despite being selected on the interchange bench Sharks coach John Morris has pitched Hamlin-Uele into the run-on team over the past three weeks with a game day team change.
In other team news, Ronaldo Mulitalo, a late withdrawal from the originally named Sharks side that went down to the Panthers, comes into the squad in jersey five, with Nene Macdonald going back onto the extended reserves list following his Sharks debut last Saturday afternoon.
Mulitalo was close to a return for the Penrith match but was given an extra week’s recovery after undergoing minor knee surgery earlier in the season.
Toby Rudolf has also been promoted into the Sharks starting side, taking the place of Jack Williams at lock, with Williams named in 18 on the extended bench.
Connor Tracey and Scott Sorensen are also back in the Sharks 17 for the game against the Warriors.
