The Storm don’t play until tomorrow night but the superstar fullback just released an update on his injury.
Papenhuyzen has been sidelined since he was concussed by a Tyrell Fuimaono which saw the Dragons forward sent off in round 10.
The Sharks have made two changes to the team which snuck past the Panthers last week.
Concussion protocol has ruled out Wade Graham. He’s been replaced by Siosifa Talakai.
Braden Hamlin-Uele also returns after missing the last five games due to an ankle injury.
Ivan Cleary’s side were undefeated before State of Origin duties sidelined multiple stars.
The result has been consecutive defeats to the Sharks and Tigers.
With all of their stars back in action tonight, expect a big performance against the Roosters. The tri-colours have built a healthy rivalry with the mountain men in the last 12 months.
In the weeks after Cronulla sacked John Morris, it appeared as though the Sharks had thrown their season away.
But interim coach Josh Hannay has turned his team around. They’ve won their last three starts - agains the Dragons, Titans and an understrength Panthers.
Only points difference is keeping Cronulla out of the top eight. If they beat the Cowboys tonight, they will make the leap into a finals slot.
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of tonight’s mouthwatering double header.
First up, the Cowboys face the Sharks. But that’s just the curtain raiser for the main event.
The Panthers have all their State of Origin stars back in their side just in time to face the Roosters.
