DEBUTANT WATCH | Sharks to unleash Xerri

Bronson Xerri will make his debut for the Cronulla Sharks with the injury of Matt Moylan causing a backline shuffle.

John Morris called Xerri into his office to break the news to him earlier today with Josh Dugan moving to fullback and the young gun to take his centre spot.

Xerri has been a mainstay in the NSW Pathways Program for years having played for NSW at U16s, U18s and U20s level.

Chanel Harris-Tavita will make his debut for the New Zealand Warriors after coach Stephen Kearney dropped Adam Keighran after back-to-back losses.

Harris-Tavita turns 20 tomorrow but has been playing and dominating senior footy for over a year in the Canterbury Cup.
