The game against the Raiders was a heart-stopper, with the controversial disallowed try, then the field goal by Valentine Holmes in golden point making it a match to remember for Sharks fans wherever they were watching.

In case you missed it, see what the media said about the Sharks win in the National Capital.

The first shots have also been fired ahead of the Sharks v Bulldogs blockbuster this Sunday afternoon at Belmore Sports Ground with former Cronulla junior Michael Lichaa talking about his rivalry with current Sharks number nine Michael Ennis.

The Gallen contract negotiations attracted some attention, with the Sharks skipper expected to sign off on his new deal as soon as this week, while Fox Sports believes Ben Barba is rediscovering some of the form that saw him claim the prestigious Dally M award back in 2012.  

All that in more, in Sharks In the News for Monday, July 20.
