As a part of the NRL's Indigenous Round, the Sharks return home to host competition heavyweights the Sydney Roosters at PointsBet Stadium on Saturday night.
Despite the absence of the suspended Will Kennedy and Jesse Ramien, along with Dale Finucane, Braden Hamlin-Uele and Jack Williams amongst those sidelined with injury, the Sharks were able to get the better of the Gold Coast last Sunday to consolidate their position inside the top four.
For Saturday night's match against the Roosters Kennedy returns at fullback, resulting in impressive debutant Lochy Miller moving back to an extended bench.
Otherwise the Sharks have made no other changes to their line up to tackle the Roosters, with Siosifa Talakai named and expected to take his place in the Sharks side after failing to finish the game against the Titans due to an ankle issue.
The match will also be the 200th NRL game for the Sharks for premiership winning forward Andrew Fifita, with his milestone match appropriately taking place during Indigenous Round.
The Sharks and Roosters match kicks off at 7.30pm, with a large crowd expected and fans encouraged to pre-purchase tickets to avoid disappointment.
