Heritage Series - 1999 Sharks v Souths
In the second instalment of the Heritage Series, celebrating the club’s 50th Anniversary, the Sharks take on Souths in a 1999 classic match.
Another game featuring Sharks greats, against one of the traditional rivals and a match to be enjoyed for Cronulla fans young or old.
Again to coincide with the Sharks opponents tomorrow night, is a game from 1999, played at the Sydney Football Stadium.
A young Bill Harrigan was the referee, Andrew Ettingshausen captained a Sharks team playing in the old 'Pepsi' branded jerseys.
The Sharks team possessed a wealth of talent, Mat Rogers, McKenna, Stevens, Treister and Healey amongst them, but without spoiling the result of the heritage match, it was Souths who touched down early to take the lead.
Jimmy Smith, these days a media personality, back in 1999 a Souths backrower, diving on a loose ball for the first points.
As for what transpired after that, for those not yet born or others with memories failing them, sit back, enjoy and see how the game turned out.
In the coming weeks we will unveil more old games, matches against the Warriors, Raiders, Broncos, Cowboys, Roosters and Knights, all in the lead up to and coinciding with scheduled 2017 Sharks NRL fixtures.
Enjoy the action, Sharks v Souths, Sydney Football Stadium, from 1999, now playing on Sharks TV, Channel 67.
