Peachey to stay a Shark

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.

A great deal of conjecture surrounded the negotiations, some rumours even suggesting that Peachey would never pull on a Cronulla jersey again. This will not be the case, however, with the lanky fullback a chance at returning from his quadricep injury this weekend against St George Illawarra.

Cronulla are also expected to soon announce the re-signing of young five eighth or lock Greg Bird. Adam Dykes is also tipped to make a return to the club pending a release from his contract with Parramatta.
