The Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks have today named an 18-man squad for the upcoming Dick Smith Auckland Nines squad, taking place at Eden Park on January 31 and February 1.
Luke Lewis will captain a side that features former Dragons trio Gerard Beale, Kyle Stanley and young gun Jackson Bird.
NRL regulars Nathan Gardener, Chris Heighnington, Sosaia Feki and Sam Tagataese were also named as the club looks to put a horror couple of seasons behind them.
The Sharks finished in the final 4 at the 2014 event and are pooled with the Roosters, Bulldogs and Broncos in the Piha group. They play the Bulldogs and Broncos on day one, and the Roosters on day two.
