Utility Daniel Mortimer, a player with two Grand Final appearances under his belt, will play for the Sharks in 2017.

A member of the victorious Roosters team of 2014 and also a part of the Parramatta Eels squad beaten in the 2009 Grand Final by the Melbourne Storm, Mortimer adds to the depth at the Sharks in both the halves and hooking roles.

Also the 2009 NRL Rookie of the Year while at the Eels, Mortimer most recently played for the Gold Coast Titans, with his experience and ability set to be an asset to the Sharks next season as they bid to defend their NRL title.

In total Mortimer has played 126 NRL matches at three different clubs, while he was a part of the Prime Ministers XIII which played in Papua New Guinea at the end of the 2015 season.

Mortimer began training with the Sharks last week and has impressed with his fitness, skill level and attitude and is certain to put plenty of pressure on the incumbent NRL team members ahead of the 2017 season kick off.

Following a pre-season session at the Sharks Academy Fields at Cronulla High School today Mortimer spoke to Sharks TV. See what he had to say, now playing.
