In accepting the penalties imposed on Will Kennedy and Jesse Ramien, the Sharks have been forced into a couple of changes and positional switches for their Magic Round clash with the Canberra Raiders on Sunday.
With no Kennedy at the back, coach Craig Fitzgibbon has elected to move Nicho Hynes into the number one jersey, while Connor Tracey after his impressive return from injury last weekend, goes from the wing into Ramien’s centre position.
Ronaldo Mulitalo, after sitting out the Warriors win due to a bad dose of the flu, comes back into the side on the wing, with Braydon Trindall partnering Matt Moylan in the halves.
Otherwise, the Sharks team remains the same as the one which scored a courageous win over the Warriors despite being a man short for 62 minutes, then two men down for 10 minutes of the second half.
The Sharks and Raiders match is the first Sunday game of the NRL’s Magic Round, kicking off at 1.50pm.
