Recommended Posts

In keeping with my view that the Sharks sign them if they are old and/ or crocked. Strong rumours that Sharks have signed Josh Morris from Bulldogs for 2019  At 32 Josh is definitely one for the future.

Leeds stand-off or centre Joel Moon will not play in Super League in 2019, according to reports.

The 30-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, with a number of NRL clubs keen on acquiring his services, including the likes of Melbourne Storm, Sydney Roosters and Newcastle Knights.

His agent, Chris Fellas, confirmed the move: “Joel has interest from six NRL clubs to return home and, despite good offers in Super League, he would like to finish his Super League career with Leeds.

“We haven’t yet agreed in terms of the NRL, but expect to do so in coming weeks.”

Moon first came to England in 2012, joining Salford from New Zealand Warriors, before making the move to Leeds the following season.

He has since gone on to make over 150 appearances for the Rhinos, winning two Grand Finals, two Challenge Cups and a League Leaders Shield along the way.

Cronulla Sharks forward Jayson Bukuya has signed a two-year contract extension that will see him remain at the club until at least the end of the 2020 season.

Bukuya has played 141 of his 159 games for the Sharks, with a one-year stint in 2014 breaking up his 11-year NRL career.

The 29-year-old won a premiership with the Sharks in 2016, and was thrilled to put pen to paper on an extension.

“I’m pleased for myself and my family, now that there’s a bit more security for the next two years,” Bukuya told Sharks TV.

Former international and veteran Bulldogs centre Josh Morris has agreed to a two-year deal at the Sharks from next season.

It was no secret the 31-year-old was being shopped around by the Bulldogs, who are still in the grip of a salary cap crisis.

And while there was reported interest particularly from the Titans, Morris has already told his teammates at Belmore that he’ll be leaving to play under Shane Flanagan in 2019.

Two-time premiership player Luke Lewis has announced his retirement from the NRL, revealing tonight that he will finish his decorated career at the end of 2018.

The 34-year-old made his NRL debut with Penrith in 2001 and played on the wing in the Panthers' 2003 premiership-winning side.

After 12 seasons and 208 games with Penrith, Lewis joined the Cronulla Sharks in 2014 and tasted grand final glory again his third season in the Shire.

Lewis played back row in Cronulla's memorable 14-12 win over the Storm in the 2016 decider and capped a magnificent game by taking home the Clive Churchill Medal as the best player on the ground.


Lewis played 16 Test matches for Australia and 17 Origins for NSW. He was part of the Blues' series wining sides in 2004 and 2014.

A member of the elite 300-game club, Lewis is one of the most respected figures in the NRL and his Sharks team-mates will be doing their utmost to send him out with a third premiership.

"It's been an awesome 18 years and I've loved every minute of it. I'll retire with great memories," Lewis told Sharks Media.

PENRITH have locked down cult hero Viliame Kikau until the end of the 2022 NRL season, keeping him out of reach of rival clubs.

Despite being on contract until the end of next year, the Fijian powerhouse back-rower on Wednesday extended his deal for a further three years.

“It’s very exciting to know I’ll be at Panthers for the next few years,” Kikau said.
