Late Mail - Sharks v Cowboys

Sharks Wade Graham and Will Kennedy have successfully navigated the concussion protocols during the week, with the pair cleared to take on the Cowboys tonight in what will be an unchanged team from the one selected on Tuesday. 

Graham and Kennedy were both forced from the field in the game against the Eels last weekend, however the fact that the Sharks skipper and their in-form fullback are fit to play will provide a major boost for the Cronulla side. 

The team as selected will run out 1-13, with Teig Wilton to make his debut in the starting side, the south-coast back-rower outstanding in the Sharks loss to Parramatta. He comes in for the suspended Briton Nikora. 

In other team changes from last week, Mawene Hiroti has been named as Sione Katoa's wing replacement, with Connor Tracey retaining his place in the Sharks backline. 

Young forward Franklin Pele and experienced outside back Nene Macdonald are omitted from the 19-man squad. 

The game against the Cowboys is scheduled to get underway at 5.15pm as the first of a double-header at Netstrata Stadium, to be followed by the Titans and Raiders at 7.45pm.
