The Cronulla Sutherland Sharks

A past to be proud of and a future to look forward to

Full Landscape 1

The Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks entered the elite NSWRL competition in 1967, playing their first game against the Eastern Suburbs Roosters at the Sydney Showground in Moore Park.

It was a match won by the Sharks and marked the beginnings of a club now recognised and respected throughout the sporting world.

The Sharks haven’t yet managed to raise the premiership trophy in triumph, but it hasn’t been for a lack of trying. Three times they have contested First Grade Grand Finals and on numerous other occasions have threatened a premiership breakthrough, while the Sharks Amco Cup triumph in 1979 stands tall as a significant achievement during what was a successful era at the club.

As for their lower grades, the Under-23 team of 1975 claimed the first of five competition trophies won by the club, the 2013NSW Cup team the most recent.  

While major team titles may have so far eluded the Sharks, the Cronulla club has managed to produce numerous champion players, many who have represented Australia, NSW and Queensland, as well as New Zealand and Great Britain, with distinction.

Two of those players, Greg Pierce and Steve Rogers were afforded the honour of becoming Australian Test Captains, while current club skipper Paul Gallen has led NSW into the State of Origin arena for the past three seasons.

The Rothman’s Medal, at one time the highest individual honour in the game, has been won by six Sharks players, the Dally M Medal, now awarded to the NRL’s best player, has been accepted by three Cronulla players on four separate occasions.

And of all the greats to have worn the blue, black and white, the Sharks decided to recognise five of their best as club Immortals, with Steve Rogers, Andrew Ettingshausen, Greg Pierce, Tommy Bishop and Gavin Miller shining examples of everything that is, and has been great about the Cronulla club.

Now entering an era of change, with the exciting Woolooware Bay Property Development set to significantly change the landscape at Sharks ‘headquarters’ in the Sutherland Shire, both aesthetically and financially, the future remains bright.

Travel the pages of the Sharks website to read more about the great players, past deeds and club achievements, or for up to date information on the current crop of Sharks who continue the quest for that coveted first NRL premiership trophy.

Otherwise if in the vicinity, pay a visit to Remondis Stadium and take in the game day experience, or drop into Sharkies for all our Leagues Club has to offer.

The Sharks have past to be proud of and a future to look forward to.
