Cronulla and the Wests Tigers will both field new-look line-ups when they restart their season in round three.
The Sharks will welcome back Briton Nikora, and possibly fullback Matt Moylan, from injury, while Chad Townsend picked up a thumb injury at training but is little chance of missing the match. They will have to cope without Bronson Xerri who has been suspended after failing an ASADA drug test.
For the Tigers, co-captain Moses Mbye is over his knee injury while halfback Luke Brooks will also give them a timely injection of playmaking power alongside Benji Marshall.
