Tupou reportedly signs with Sharks

Test forward Anthony Tupou has reportedly stitched up a deal to play with the Cronulla Sharks next NRL season.

News Limited and Fairfax newspapers have reported the Sydney Roosters backrower will be reunited with his former coach Ricky Stuart at the Sharks.

The Daily Telegraph says Tupou has signed a four-year deal while The Australian and The Sydney Morning Herald have said he has taken up a five-year contract.

Tupou's arrival at Cronulla will provide the Sharks with one of the most potent backrow combinations in the competition as he will play alongside Greg Bird and Paul Gallen.
