NRL teams: Gallen, Waerea-Hargreaves return

Paul Gallen and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will make timely returns for the Sharks and Roosters respectively this weekend.

Gallen has not played since breaking ribs in Cronulla's round three win over the Cowboys but will return for tomorrow night's clash with the Panthers at Pointsbet Stadium.

Fellow Sharks enforcer Andrew Fifita has also been named in the front row, despite some hamstring tightness putting him in doubt earlier this week.

Another big man makes a timely return from a rib injury on Friday night, with Waerea-Hargreaves set to suit up in the Roosters' grand final replay with the Storm.

There is still no sign of Jake Friend, who is nursing a shoulder complaint.

The Storm welcome Suliasi Vunivalu back into their team, after he missed the 18-12 win over the Cowboys due to suspension.
