A player with immense skill, if Adam Dykes was to be underestimated by opposition defences it would certainly be to their detriment.

A product of the local De La Salle club, Dykes burst onto the scene in the premiership winning Sharks President’s Cup team of 1994 and quickly made the transition to the top grade.

One of the most talented juniors to play for the Sharks, Dykes debuted as an 18-year-old in 1995 before going on to make 183 appearances in two stints at the club.

Dykes left the Club at the end of 2001 after seven seasons in the top grade, before returning to the Sharks to play three more years from 2005-2007.

An attacking genius on his day, Dykes was one of the very best playmakers to wear the black, white and blue of the Sharks.
