Sharks coach Chris Anderson has named a competitive squad for their game against the North Queensland Cowboys at Dairy Farmers Stadium this weekend.
Hampered by the injury to star halfback, Brett Kimorley, Anderson must throw caution to the wind and try out some new combinations to get the failing Sharks season back on track.
Anderson is relying heavily on his older, more experienced playmakers to help lift the side from the slump the club finds itself in.
The team is:
1-David Peachey - Fullback 2-Laloaoa Milford - Winger 3-Jarrad Anderson - Centre 4-Phil Bailey - Centre 5-Matt Rieck - Winger 6-Greg Bird - Five Eight 7-Andrew Dallalana - Half Back 8-Jason Stevens - Prop 9-Pat Gibson - Hooker 10-Chris Beattie - Prop 11-Danny Nutley - Second Row 12-Matt Bickerstaff - Second Row 13-Matt Hilder - Lock
