Bulldogs name squad for Sharks

Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs explosive winger Matt Utai has forced his way back into the top grade after a number of outstanding performances for the Bulldogs Premier League team. Utai will come into the side on the wing for this Sunday's match against the Sharks at Toyota Park in place of Ben Harris who is relegated to Premier League.

Jamaal Lolesi moves from the wing to play in the centres alongside Willie Tonga.

Bulldogs coach Steve Folkes has named a five man interchange and will wait until later in the week before determing the final make-up of his bench.
