Late Mail - Sharks v Storm

The Sharks will run out unchanged and as selected on Tuesday for their match with the Melbourne Storm at CBus Super Stadium tonight. 

A match set to determine the Sharks destiny in 2021, coach Josh Hannay has confirmed the promotion of Matt Moylan and Teig Wilton into his starting side, for the game where a win would guarantee his team's participation in the NRL Finals starting next weekend. 

Moylan has worked his way back to full fitness after spending an extended time on the sidelines, with capable young rookie Luke Metcalf reverting to the interchange bench after being a part of the Sharks starting side over the last two rounds. 

As for young back rower Wilton, his form has been too hard to ignore, with the NSW South Coast product also now back on deck over the past two weeks after recovery from a hamstring issue. 

Following the loss by the Raiders last night, the equation is simple for the Sharks, with a win confirming their place in the top eight while a loss to the Storm will result in an anxious couple of days waiting for the Gold Coast Titans to play the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday.

The Sharks v Storm match kicks off at 6.00pm tonight, with the two 17-man team lists and 18th man concussion substitutes listed below.
