Cronulla captain Paul Gallen (pictured) says he hopes to see Sam Tagatese in the Sharks side that will meet Melbourne in the NRL Grand Final on Sunday.

Tagatese has missed the past six games for the Sharks after fracturing his scapula in Round 22 but was named in a six man Cronulla bench on Tuesday.

Gallen says with everything to play for on Sunday, he’d welcome the giant forwards presence alongside him as they go into battle with the giant Storm forward pack.
