In an injury setback for the Sharks, co-captain Dale Finucane will miss the remainder of the year due to a biceps injury.
Finucane underwent surgery to repair the injury earlier today, with the recovery period of 12 weeks ruling him out for the rest of the 2023 season.
The injury to Finucane follows a season-ending knee injury to Teg Wilton who also had surgery last week, with the young backrower suffering a meniscus tear in the game against the Warriors.
In other Sharks injury news, Braden Hamlin-Uele has been included in the 22-man squad to play the Panthers on Saturday as he continues his recovery from a low-grade lower leg problem, while Wade Graham and Siosifa Talakai have been named in the Sharks 17 this weekend after missing the Manly match on Sunday.
