CRONULLA have announced a deal which will see them join forces with Newtown for 2005 and beyond. The new association will see Cronulla scrap their existing Premier League team, with Newtown to be brought in as a feeder club.
DAVID Peachey has today signed a contract which will see him remain a Shark until the end of 2005. It will be his twelfth season with the club after moving to Sydney from Dubbo.
CRONULLA utility forward Paul Gallen has extended his contract for a further three years in a boost for the southern Sydney club. Gallen had previously entered the player market before the June 30 deadline to get a guage on his market value, but was satisfied with the offer Cronulla offered him.
CRONULLA have continued their foray into the player market, with Wests Tigers three quarter Luke Covell agreeing to terms with the club. Covell is most noted for his goalkicking ability, an area in which Cronulla is decidedly lacking.
CRONULLA are poised to enter the player market for the second consecutive year as they strive to plug the gaps in their still improving squad. It is understood that the key priorities are a five eighth, a goalkicker and a prop forward.
IT'S crunch time. With another fine win under Cronulla's belt, the time for tough decisions has arrived.
IT was always going to be a tough ask. Without Noddy or Stevo, or Peach or Vagana, the Sharks were always going to struggle for leadership against the Raiders.
A blow for the Cronulla Sharks in the leadup to tomorrow night's game against Canberra, with both fullback David Peachey and centre Nigel Vagana ruled out with injury. Peachey succumbed to a thigh strain in the second half of last weekend's game against Brisbane, while Vagana injured his ankle in the dying minutes of that same game.
FOR Cronulla fans, 2004 only gets better. Continuing a hot streak, the Sharks put on a very strong display to down the Broncos on their home paddock. Brisbane got off to a great start, leaving most Sharks fans in a state of shock, until a war of attrition wore down the Queenslanders. Some razzle dazzle attacking football saw Cronulla streak away with victory.
WOE is South Sydney, the latest victim of a continuously improving Cronulla team. Last night the Sharks were fierce, but not until after a much needed first half wake up call. Souths dashed to a 12 point lead before Cronulla replied with 38 unanswered points, little hooker Michael Sullivan stealing the show.
