Mellor to return to Cronulla

Current Castleford back, Paul Mellor, has signed a deal which will see him return to the Cronulla Sharks in 2005. Mellor, a Shark between 1999 and 2002, originally left the Shire amid controversial circumstances amid the tenure of former coach Chris Anderson.

Mellor will offer additional depth to Cronulla's backline, while offering further value as a back up in the backrow.

The signing of Mellor is expected to be followed by the announcement of Adam Dykes' return to the Sharks in the near future.
