Parramatta fullback will once again lace his boots at Southern Cross Group Stadium on a Saturday night, however on this occasion it is with a twist.
For three season, Michael or ‘Flash’ Gordon, as he was affectionately known in the Shire, kept crowds on the edge of their seats week in week out.
Tomorrow night, the home faithful will be hoping for the exact opposite.
Playing for a total of 71 matches for Cronulla, Gordon claimed the Monty Porter Medal in two of his three seasons at the Club along with creating a series of strong bonds in the Shire.
Gordon spoke this morning, saying how pleased he was for the Sharks current success.
“I’m happy for them,” Gordon told The Big Sports Breakfast.
“I’ve got a lot of good mates over there. I think everyone’s happy to see the Sharks do well so it’s good to see them sitting on top of the table and it’s going to be tough for us to get up at Shark Park.”
Gordon said that his former team were looking good in 2016 and that his former team have been on a good run both physically and mentally.
“Yeah they’ve got the team.
“I think they’ve only used 19 players too which is unheard of at this time of year.
“Fingers crossed they can keep all their players on the park because that certainly helps you win games, keeping the same combinations on the field, and they’ve been doing that all year.
When asked how he saw the rest of 2016 playing out for the Sharks, Gordon praised their road ahead however was quick to hose down and compliments about tomorrow night’s clash.
“Fingers crossed everyone stays injury free and they can have a good run for the rest of the year but hopefully they don’t play too well tomorrow night.
