Cronulla five-eighth James Maloney looks set to overcome a groin strain to take his place in the team for Monday's NRL clash with Gold Coast.

The NSW State of Origin playmaker missed last week's win over Newcastle but is expected to be back to help the Sharks' attempt to extend their winning streak to 16.

Maloney's inclusion comes after his Origin teammates Paul Gallen, Wade Graham, Andrew Fifita and Jack Bird all returned from sanctioned holidays for the run home to the finals.
