Cronulla Sharks

Cronulla SharksSince entering the NSW Rugby league Premiership in 1967, the Cronulla Sharks have, unfortunately, best been known for their long stretches of futility. The club managed just six finals appearances in its first 28 years of play, but their much-publicised failure to capture a single NRL premiership was finally ended with a Grand Final win in 2016.

A scintillating 15-game winning streak ensured the Sharks would play finals for a second straight year, and while they spluttered towards the end of the season, they recaptured their form just in time. Narrow wins over Canberra and North Queensland put Cronulla into their fourth Grand Final, but this time they came away with their first trophy after a thrilling win over Melbourne.

Senior coach: Shane Flanagan
