It comes as no surprise that State of Origin has dominated the media conversation over the past 10 days, with the table-topping Sharks sneaking under the proverbial ‘radar’ in the lead up to their game against the Bulldogs on Monday night.
As captain of the Blues Paul Gallen received plenty of air-time during the lead-up and in the aftermath to Origin, as did James Maloney who was one of NSW best in their two-point loss to Queensland.
Also in a review after Origin One Matt Johns weighed into the argument of who should represent NSW in Game 2, with the TV personality and former Blues five eighth nominating Jack Bird as the man to take over the utility role for the second match of the series.
But back on the home front and there was a trickle of Sharks media heading into the round 13 clash, with match previews and a handful of profile articles appearing in newspapers and magazines.
The Sydney Morning Herald also produced their weekly ‘Power Rankings’, rating the Sharks on top of the heap after the first 12 rounds of the 2016 competition.
In case you missed it, see what they’ve been writing, what they’ve been saying over the past week in Sharks in the News for Friday, June 3.
