Sharks set to feature in Newtown’s Tigers trial
While fellow Cronulla Sharks squad members ready themselves for Sunday’s World Club Challenge, others will turn out for the Newtown Jets in the side’s trial versus the Wests Tigers at Henson Park.
New recruit Manaia Cherrington will look to build upon his strong form shown at the Auckland Nines, so too fellow Nines squad member Malakai Houma.
The pair will join Jayden Walker, Kurt Dillon and Jaimin Jolliffe as other Sharks to feature.
Kurt Kara, who also turned out for the Sharks at the Nines weekend, will also be on show.
