Round 3 Late Mail - Sharks v Dragons

In late mail ahead of the Sharks big local derby clash with the Dragons later tonight, coach Craig Fitzgibbon and his coaching staff have made no changes to the team as selected on Tuesday. 

The Sharks have made two forced changes to the team which beat the Eels in thrilling fashion last week, with Teig Wilton (suspension) and Ronaldo Mulitalo (concussion protocols) unavailable for tonight's match. 

Siosifa Talakai comes into the Sharks starting 13 in place of Wilton after delivering a strong performance in the Eels win, while Roosters recruit Matt Ikuvalu will take his place on the wing with Mulitalo ruled out. 

Braydon Trindall, who has the ability to cover a number of positions in a utility role, also returns on the Sharks interchange bench following a two-match suspension.  

Otherwise the Sharks team will take on a familiar look to the one which took to the field last weekend, with former Dragons skipper Cam McInnes expected to play more minutes this week for the Cronulla side in what will be just his second game back from a knee injury. 

The Sharks will again be led by Dale Finucane in the absence of Wade Graham who continues his rehabilitation from an ankle problem. 

The Sharks v Dragons match, which will be played for the Monty Porter Memorial Trophy, is scheduled to get underway at 8.05pm at WIN Stadium in Wollongong.
