Sharks 2016 Premiership winning hooker Michael Ennis was humbled by his selection as hooker in the Cronulla Team of the Half Century.

Announced at the 50th Anniversary Gala Ball at Daltone House last night, Ennis beat out a group of quality nominees to claim the coveted hooker position.

Speaking to Sharks TV immediately after receiving his accolade, Ennis was humbled by the honour bestowed on him by the members fans and independent selection panel.

Arriving at the Sharks in 2015 Ennis proved to be such a vital cog in the sharks side in his two seasons in the Sutherland Shire.

Skilful, tough and ultra-competitive, Ennis may not have been the Sharks captain but he led from the front, tackling himself to a standstill and putting his team on the front foot with his abilities at dummy half.

The Dally M hooker of the Year in 2015, Ennis probably lifted to an even greater level in the Sharks premiership season of 2016, with experts conceding the NRL trophy probably wouldn’t have taken up residence in Cronulla had it not been for his efforts this past year.

Durable in addition to his other qualities, Ennis missed just one game in his two seasons at the Sharks, in a celebrated 51-game career at the Cronulla club.
