The Sharks will look to consolidate their position inside the top eight when they play the Sea Eagles in a round 20 clash this weekend, however they will have to do it without Shaun Johnson after the key playmaker was ruled out of Sunday’s game.
Johnson limped off with a hamstring injury shortly before half time during their win over the Bulldogs and he now faces an extended period on the sideline.
In his place, Sharks coach Josh Hannay has named the versatile Connor Tracey in the halves, where he will partner youngster Braydon Trindall, with Will Chambers returning to the NRL team in taking over Tracey’s position in the centres.
Chambers has been unavailable for the last four games in going through NRL quarantine protocols following the birth of his third child.
Teig Wilton is unavailable with a hamstring strain, as is outside back Mawene Hiroti who suffered a broken hand in the Bulldogs game.
Aiden Tolman returns after serving a one-match suspension and Matt Moylan has been named on an extended bench.
The Sharks and Manly play at Moreton Daily Stadium in Redcliffe on Sunday, with kick off at 4.05pm.
The two 21-man squads are listed below.
