Sharp Shifts South
Ex Manly coach Peter Sharp has taken up an assistant coaching position at the Melbourne Storm for the coming season. Sharp, who was effectively sacked mid-way through the 2003 season, will join Craig Bellamy's staff in a new position.
Bellamy and current assistant Dean Lance felt they needed more personel on deck to keep the Storm's momentum going into 2004.
Sharp went through a tough time with Manly with club financial troubles and then boardroom battles hindering his coaching and selection efforts.
A push for Sharp's assistant and Manly legend Des Hasler was the last straw and saw Sharp announce his resignation mid-season and made for a difficult end to the year.
