Late Mail - Sharks v Warriors

Sharks Coach John Morris has made a significant change to his line up for his teams clash with the Warriors today. 

Morris has made the decision to shift Josh Dugan into the centres and to bring youngster Will Kennedy into fullback in something of a reaction to the last start loss to the Panthers. 

Dugan was originally chosen at fullback, however while also amongst the Sharks best in the last start defeat playing at the back, he had previously been in tremendous form in the centres, with his defensive ability shaping as a bonus on the Sharks left hand side in today's important round 10 game.

The odd man out in the positional switch is Bryson Goodwin who makes way for the inclusion of Kennedy and the Dugan move.

In another alteration to his originally selected side Morris will bring Scott Sorensen into his starting side, with Toby Rudolf going back to the bench. 

Rudolf will join Royce Hunt, Siosifa Talakai and Connor Tracey on the interchange bench. 

Goodwin and Billy Magoulias has been omitted from the team as named on Tuesday. 

And in some positive news for the Sharks the return of Ronaldo Mulitalo is confirmed, with the outstanding young outside back having missed the past five games due to a knee injury. 

The Sharks v Warriors match is scheduled for a 2.00pm kickoff at the Central Coast Stadium, with the two 17-man teams listed below.
