Cronulla Sharks

Cronulla SharksAfter entering the NSW Rugby league Premiership in 1967, the Cronulla Sharks registered their first title this year, defeating the Melbourne Storm 14-12. The Sharks have unearthed some of the game’s finest players headed by League legends Steve Rogers and Andrew Ettingshausen. Before winning the premiership, Cronulla had the longest drought in the NRL but were Grand finalists in 1973, 1978 and 1997.

In 2015 the Sharks finished the regular season in sixth spot before progressing to the semi-finals, where they were thrashed 39-0 at the hands of eventual premiers the North Queensland Cowboys.

The Sharks finished third in 2016 and started off their finals campaign with a record-breaking victory over the Canberra Raiders away from home before defeating the Cowboys and Storm to take home their first title.
