The Sharks on Thursday hosted the Club's Women In League luncheon, in paying tribute to the great work done by the many females right across the game.

"I wouldn't be here without the women in my life," Sharks Captain Paul Gallen said at the event.

"I'm lucky enough to have a beautiful wife and two beautiful daughters ... There's some very special women in my life, and I've got no doubts I wouldn't be here without them."
