Late Mail - Sharks v Warriors

The Sharks have one significant change to their line up to face the Warriors at CBus Super Stadium today with interchange forward Royce Hunt a late withdrawal. 

Hunt left the team camp last night to return home for the birth of his first child, a boy born in the early hours of this morning. 

With his absence from the Sharks side, Luke Metcalf has been added to the 17-man squad, the youngster in line to play his second game in the NRL after making his debut in the loss to Manly last weekend.

Otherwise the Sharks team is as selected on Tuesday, with Jesse Ramien the only other change to the team from Monday's game. 

Ramien missed the Manly match due to an ear infection. 

In tweaking his starting team and bench rotation following the Sea Eagles game, coach Josh Hannay has named Toby Rudolf to start in the front row, Jack Williams moves to lock and Aiden Tolman will come off the interchange. 

Siosifa Talakai, who did a solid job in the centres last week, reverts to his position in the back row.

The Sharks and Warriors match gets underway at 3.00pm today at CBus, with the two 17-man teams and 18th man concussion substitutions listed below.
