With injuries to Todd Carney and Anthony Tupou as well as Paul Gallen and Luke Lewis absent on origin duty, the Sharks squad for their round 11 clash is lacking in both experience and strike power.
The Sharks are again without Todd Carney and fill in five-eighth Daniel Holdsworth has his work cut out replacing the undeniable attacking brilliance of Carney.
The Rabbitohs have both their starting halves John Sutton and Adam Reynolds for this clash. With the wealth of talent and unpredictability this pair possesses, the Rabbitohs will come into this game as clear favourites.
The Sharks in recent times have lifted during the origin period and produced some outstanding upset wins, however with a number of key players missing from the squad the Sharks face a tough task on Monday night against what is sure to be a classy Rabbitohs outfit.
