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.
