Sharks Celebrate after Gallen scores  :Digital Image Grant Trouville © NRLphotos  : NRL Rugby League - Round 20 - Bulldogs v Cronulla Sharks at Belmore Oval Sportsground Sunday the 26th of July  2015.

Sharks fans may well be accustomed to the Club Captain clocking more than 200m and 30-plus tackles in a match - but they shouldn't let that detract from the enormity of the feat. 

The Sharks travelled to Belmore in Round 20 to take on a Bulldogs side looking to keep touch the with NRL's top four. Buoyed by a home crowd that raised the 'full house' sign on a sunny Sunday afternoon, the Dogs would not be able to stop a rampant Sharks outfit, inspired by their skipper Paul Gallen.

Gallen - renowned for his amazing work rate in both attack and defence - went about totalling 215 metres from his 26 carries, in also making 35 tackles in his time without the ball.

And, when the side needed even more from the leader, 'Gal' stepped up to cross for a decisive try in the game's second period.
