Late Mail - Sharks v Sea Eagles

The Sharks will be without a couple of senior personnel, but at the same time welcome back two important members of their squad for the Steve Rogers Cup clash against Manly. 

As revealed earlier in the week Dale Finucane will miss the game later tonight while completing his concussion protocols, with Braden Hamlin-Uele sidelined for an extended period following surgery to repair a pectoral rupture. 

The absence of the two senior forwards will be off-set somewhat by the return of Briton Nikora after the Kiwi backrower missed the Storm match due to Covid, and in another boost to the Sharks chances try-scoring winger Sione Katoa is back after sitting our last weekend's game with knee soreness. 

Cam McInnes comes in as a more-than handy replacement for Finucane at lock, Aiden Tolman moves from the bench into the starting side, while Royce Hunt has been added to the Sharks interchange bench. 

With Finucane ruled out and Wade Graham still sidelined with an ankle injury, Nicho Hynes assumes the captaincy role for the first time in Sharks colours. 

The Sharks v Sea Eagles match is scheduled for a 7.50pm kickoff at PointsBet Stadium, with Anzac Round commemorations to precede the start of the game. 

The two teams will also play for the Steve Rogers Cup, in recognition of the late Sharks Immortal. Manly are the current holders of the Cup after winning the only game between the teams last season. 

See the two final 17-man squads, along with the 18th player concussion substitutes, listed below.
