This Sunday afternoon, Paul Gallen will lead the Sharks out on to Remondis Stadium to take on the Manly Sea Eagles in a battle for the 'Steve Rogers Cup'.

Gallen will be at the face of the Cronulla v Manly rivalry in 2015, just like the men who captained the Sharks before him, stemming back to the Club's inception into the competition in 1967.

The Sharks and Sea Eagles rivalry came to a head in 1973 -  and again in 1978 -  when the sides met in competition Grand Finals.

Described as some of the most brutal, physical, and hard-fought matches in Australian Rugby League history, the 'Battle of the Beaches' rivalry came to be - and continues to this day, with the hostilities on the park as strong today as they ever have been. 

In this week's 'Throwback Thursday', we look back at the men who have captained the Sharks against the Sea Eagles recent history, and in years gone by.

Re-live memories of a rivalry etched in Rugby League folklore, with a special highlights package of great club captains, now playing on Sharks TV.
