Sharks embrace JL Grand Final weekend
The Sharks NRL training session took on something of a different look on Tuesday, with the squad training in an assortment of local junior league club jerseys to acknowledge and celebrate 2020 Grand Final weekend which is set to kick off on Saturday.
Blayke Brailey donned the Aquinas strip in which he was so successful as a junior league player, Connor Tracey was in his old De La Salle light blue, while Scott Sorensen and Bryson Goodwin proudly wore the colours of Cronulla Caringbah and Gymea respectively in paying tribute to their former clubs.
Those hailing from out of the Cronulla district were also more than happy to wear a jersey supplied by a Sutherland Shire club in recognising the upcoming Grand Finals on the eve of what is their biggest weekend of the year.
In all there will be 44 competition deciders, at four different venues on each of the two days, perhaps highlighted by the Southern Division Open Gold clash between De La Salle and Como Jannali.
The De La v Como matchup is scheduled for a 3.25pm kick off at Forshaw Oval as the fifth and final game scheduled for the Sylvania Waters ground on the day.
The Combined Open Women’s Tackle Grand Final is scheduled for 2.00pm, also at Forshaw, on Sunday, prior to the Aquinas v St Josephs Emerging Cup game at 3.50pm.
Other venues to be used in addition to Forshaw include the Sharks Academy Fields at Cronulla High School, Gwawley Oval and Captain Cook Oval, with matches commencing at 8 and 9am on both days (click on link below for draw and kick off times).
Grand Finals are conducted from under 9’s to open age seniors.
And due the protocols and restrictions surrounding crowds at the games on the weekend, the Cronulla-Sutherland Junior League has arranged for BAR TV Sports to live stream all of the action, from all the grounds, right throughout the weekend.
