Cronulla Sharks

Cronulla SharksDespite entering the NSW Rugby league Premiership in 1967, the Cronulla Sharks are still yet to register a first grade title. Despite this, the Sharks have unearthed some of the game’s finest players headed by League legends Steve Rogers and Andrew Ettingshausen. The closest Cronulla have come to a Premiership victory was in their three Grand final losses 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.
