Taco Team List Tuesday

A win clinches a place in the NRL's top eight, while a loss to the Melbourne Storm in their round 25 match up and the Sharks will need results to go there way should they hope to qualify for a seventh consecutive Finals series. 

Currently eighth, the Sharks play a Storm side sitting in first position on the ladder, with the challenge a formidable one in the game scheduled for a 6.00pm kick off at CBus Super Stadium this on Friday night. 

The Sharks however come into the contest with a level of confidence after what have essentially been back to back sudden-death victories over the Tigers and Broncos. 

For the game on Friday, Josh Hannay has retained the 17-man squad which battled hard for the win over the Broncos, with the only alterations seeing Matt Moylan and Teig Wilton injected into the starting side, with rookie Luke Metcalf and back rower Siosifa Talakai going back to the interchange bench. 

There were no serious injury concerns coming from last Saturday's game and Jesse Ramien in avoiding a suspension for dangerous contact on rival centre Herbie Farnsworth is available to play. Ramien was handed a grade one charge, which attracted a monetary fine, rather than a suspension. 

The 21-man teams for the Sharks and Storm are listed below.
