Late Mail - Sharks v Titans

The Sharks have confirmed that big, bustling youngster Franklin Pele is in line to make his NRL debut in the match against the Titans at the C.ex International Stadium in Coffs Harbour today. 

Pele has come into the Sharks 17 due to the withdrawal of Andrew Fifita, with the 20-year-old to become the 545th Cronulla First Grade player. 

Also to be celebrated today will be the 200th NRL appearance of five eighth Shaun Johnson, with the Kiwi international returning to the field after two weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring strain.

For the first official NRL match to be played in Coffs Harbour, the Sharks are otherwise unchanged, with Jesse Ramien, Siosifa Talakai and Ronaldo Mulitalo also back on deck after time off due to injury or suspension. 

The game against the Titans is scheduled for a 2.00pm kick off, with Indigenous Round festivities to take place prior to the kick off. 

The two 17-man teams, plus the 18th man concussion substitute, are listed below.
