Sharks fans can expect another action-packed evening of Rugby League and entertainment when the Cronulla Sharks take on Wests Tigers this Saturday night!
Last time we met, Cronulla secured a late 22 – 16 victory thanks to a brilliant chip-chase try by Chad Townsend. Be there when we do it again at Southern Cross Group Stadium (SCGS)!
This week, the Club has partnered up with the Melanoma Institute Australia and we’ll be celebrating our passionate family of Sharks members.
SCGS will open its doors at 5:00pm as the NYC Sharks and Tigers warm up for a 5:15pm kick off. Our strong under 20’s side will be hungry for their 11th win of the season and eager to consolidate their position at the top of the competition ladder. To check out the Sharks’ NYC team list, click HERE.
The grounds will be buzzing with DJs, drummers, inflatable sharks and more! There’ll be plenty of photo opportunities, with the Cronulla Sharks Mermaids’ Instagram frame and a green screen photo booth.
Kids can get excited for face painting, an obstacle course and the good old sharks slide! Your young one will also get the chance to write a message and hold it up to their favourite players on our fan cards.
