Sharks head coach Shane Flanagan has named a near full strength Round 25 squad to face the Roosters at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Saturday night. 

With the exception of Jack Bird, the Sharks are fielding their first choice team this week. 

Former Rooster James Maloney will line-up in the halves with Chad Townsend, while superstar fullback Valentine Holmes will headline an all star backline.
