Raper released from Sharks contract

Cronulla has confirmed coach Stuart Raper was released from his contract with the Sharks this morning.

Club chairman Barry Pierce will front a media conference shortly (10.30am) to explain the decision. It is believed former Sydney Roosters and current Australia coach Ricky Stuart will be Raper's replacement.

Cronulla announced a review of its structures and set-up after the club lost its final 10 games of the season and dropped out of finals contention.
