Late Mail - Sharks v Knights

The Sharks will run out as selected for their round four clash with the Newcastle Knights at PointsBet Stadium tonight. 

On a night when the Sharks will celebrate the 300th NRL game for front rower Aiden Tolman, the two teams will battle inclement conditions, with strong winds and rain showers predicted for PointsBet around the 6pm kick off time. 

The Sharks were forced into two changes from the team successful in beating the Dragons last Thursday night, with Connor Tracey and Matt Ikuvalu unavailable due to injury. 

Ronaldo Mulitalo returns on the wing for the Sharks, while Tracey's centre spot will be filled by the versatile Siosifa Talakai. Teig Wilton, after serving a one-match suspension, is back in the Sharks side in Talakai's second row position. 

The bench for the Sharks features Tolman, who becomes the 43rd player in the history of the game, to notch 300 first grade appearances. NRL CEO Andrew Abdo will be at PointsBet Stadium to recognise the occasion following the full-time siren. 

Kick-off to tonight's game is at 6pm, with the two 17-man teams and concussion substitutes, listed below.
