SHEFFIELD Sharks are expected to face an added problem tonight at Newcastle Eagles - notorious Shark killer Charles Smith.

The American missed last Friday’s 86-67 drubbing of Sheffield at the EIS with an injury but will return to the Newcastle rotation.

Smith has consistently played well against the Sharks and will give Sheffield player-coach Atiba Lyons another scoring threat to worry about.However, Eagles skipper Andrew Bridge - a former Sharks player - said his team has been doing just without Smith.

“Obviously Charles didn’t play, so the six guys did what they had to do. We’ve been told he’ll play so it will be good to have the extra body.”
