It is creeping ever closer, with the start of the Sharks 2015 NRL campaign now just 56 days away.
Make sure you are at Remondis Stadium on Sunday, March 8, when the Sharks host Ricky Stuart and his Canberra Raiders in an exciting round one match up.
Gallen, Barba, Ennis and Fiifta, against Ricky and his ‘Green Machine’, now just 56 days away and counting.
Your team for the Nines
We left one out when coming up with the Sharks website team for the 2015 #NRLAkl9s but the talk of Sharks training is that newcomer Kyle Stanley is almost certain to make his debut in Sharks colours at the event kicking off on January 31.
A member of the Samoan team which was impressive in the Four Nations, Stanley has played almost every position in the backline during his NRL career, as well as the occasional stint at hooker, and is perfectly suited to the Nines format.
He has also impressed in at training since joining the squad following his Four Nations commitments and will be in line for not only the Nines squad but also a utility bench position with the Sharks once the season proper gets underway in March.
Did you pick Stanley in your Nines squad?
The official Sharks team for the Auckland Nines is expected to be announced within the next week.
