#SharksInTheNews, April 8
The news following the win over the Tigers was understandably positive towards a Sharks team which overcame an early deficit to register a solid win last Saturday evening at Campbelltown Stadium.
Coming from that win however was much speculation about the bunker and its effectiveness in delivering correct decisions despite the abundance of technology at the fingertips of their video officials.
Chad Townsend addressed the media at the Sharks weekly open session on Tuesday, with the halfback revealing he knocked back an offer to join the Titans before returning to the Sutherland Shire and the Cronulla club.
In case you missed it earlier in the week, hosts Rob and Liam go over all the latest Sharks news on a Channel 67 production, Sharks in the News.
