New Shark a valuable addition
Former Knights and Raiders hooker Adam Clydsdale was a late addition to the Sharks roster in 2017, with his mid-season signing coming on the heels of the departure of one player to the UK and a serious injury suffered by another.
With Daniel Mortimer gone and youngster Jayden Brailey sidelined with a broken jaw, Clysdale sensed an opportunity in the Shire and after around a month at the Sharks received the call up to the NRL squad from Coach Shane Flanagan.
Turning in a solid cameo in the win over the Warriors last weekend, Clydsdale is now a genuine chance of retaining his place in the side to play his old club Canberra on Saturday.
Clydsdale spoke with Sharks TV about his Warriors debut, where he has come from and on the prospect of playing his old team on Saturday night.
