Late Mail - Sharks v Cowboys

The Sharks have made two changes to the team which beat the Panthers last weekend for tonight's round 15 match against the Cowboys. 

One change is forced, Wade Graham unavailable as he undergoes testing and specialist assessments after suffering a head knock last weekend, his place in the run-on side to be taken by Siosifa Talakai, while Braden Hamlin-Uele returns after missing five matches with an ankle issue. 

Hamlin-Uele comes into the Sharks team for Andrew Fifita who will play for the Newtown Jets on Saturday in a bid to get more game time and match fitness after only playing limited minutes in the Panthers game last week.  

Talented youngster Teig Wilton has been added to the interchange bench with Talakai elevated into the starting 13. 

Otherwise the Sharks team is unchanged from the side which registered a third consecutive victory with the one-point win over the Panthers. 

The match may also take on extra significance for outside backs Ronaldo Mulitalo and Will Chambers, with the pair being spoken about as potential Queensland Origin reps for game two of the series on Sunday week. 

Aaron Woods will captain the Sharks in the match to be played at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium in the absence of Graham. 

The two 17-man squads, along with the 18th man concussion substitutes, as listed below.
