WHEN any team loses 10 games in a row, it will quickly be followed by blood letting and so it was for the Cronulla Sharks after a disastrous season in 2006. Coach Stuart Raper was ceremonially sacrificed...
THE Sharks are celebrating the news that in-form winger, Luke Covell, has signed a new two year contract to remain at the club. While goalkicking is what he is best known for, Covell has developed into a top class winger while at the Sharks.
LANCE Thompson is set to sign a three year deal with the Cronulla Sharks after agreeing to terms this week. Thompson, who is playing some of the best football of his life, was expected to attract considerable attention from other clubs but will now remain a Shark for several more years.In further good news for the Sharks, winger Luke Covell, centre Beau Scott and prop James Stosic are all close to signing contracts with the club.
GREG Bird has re-signed with the Sharks on a three year deal worth what is believed to be $500 000. The signing is good news for the Sharks, with interest in Bird having been shown by both South Sydney and Melbourne.
THE CSSC is proud to announce their next big AWAY adventure to see the Cronulla Sharks up against the Newcastle Knights in Newcastle on Saturday 24 June 2006. This is down as one of the biggest of the year, and we are expecting a big turnout on our CSSC bus.
THE Cronulla Sharks have managed to have only two players selected in this friday's City / Country Origin match, despite being equal leaders in the premiership. Prop Jason Stevens will play in the front row for City, while winger Luke Covell has been called up to replace injured Country winger, Timana Tahu.
ANOTHER week, another win - the Cronulla season just keeps picking up momentum. This week, it was a highly impressive victory over an equally impressive Raiders team, led by the precision play of Jason Smith.
CRONULLA has been boosted by the announcement that coach Stuart Raper has re-signed with the club for a further two years. Raper has coached the Sharks to a 6-2 record this season, with the team sitting in equal first position on the ladder.
CRONULLA have continued their dazzling start to season 2005, notching up another victory over the highly fancied Melbourne Storm. As happens so often these days, halfback Brett Kimmorley played all over his rival half, Matt Orford, almost single-handedly ensuring Cronulla would take home the win.
WHILE the Cronulla season has been steaming along quite nicely, despite a few hiccups, there is one aspect of our game that is not nearly as efficient as it should be. I?m not talking about our missed tackles (which, I should add, are ludicrously high each week). I?m not talking about the continual selection of Greg Bird in the team over more deserving contenders (although that is another problem.)
