Taylor made for the Sharks with new contract

One of the most exciting young players in the NRLW, speedy fullback Jada Taylor has extended her contract with the Sharks until at least the end of 2026.

The 20-year-old Indigenous All Star's new deal includes an option for 2027. She was already signed for 2024.

Taylor showcased her rare pace and attacking flair as she registered two tries, five try assists and six linebreaks in six games during Cronulla's inaugural season last year.

A NSW under-19s representative in 2022, Taylor has long been earmarked as a star and is set to become a cornerstone of the Sharks spine.

"It was clear in Jada's first full season that she is going to be an outstanding player for a long time," NRLW head coach Tony Herman said.

"She is an integral part of our squad and we look forward to seeing her continue to progress and fulfil her potential in the seasons ahead."

Taylor is as tough as she is skilful, having played through a shoulder injury in the final few games of the 2023 campaign before undergoing surgery.

The Tamworth product will be fit and raring to go for the start of pre-season training.

"I love the Sharks and I'm ecstatic to have my long-term future sorted," Taylor said.

"I took a lot away from last season under Tony's coaching and I'm so excited to keep developing personally and as a team in 2024 and beyond.

"The Sharks have given me the opportunity to be an important member of the team, club and community and I really want to repay that by being at my best both on and off the field.

"The girls we have here are a really talented bunch and we all want to create a great culture and hopefully some future success for the club."

Outside her playing duties, Taylor works as the club's Indigenous Programs Coordinator, passionately delivering presentations promoting health, education and equality.
