How 2016 will go for…the Sharks

You would have to be an idiot to try and predict how a season will go for a team before a ball is even kicked. Luckily we have those in abundance here at kiwileaguecentral.com. Here is our bold, and probably completely wrong, guess at how season 2016 will go for the Cronulla Sharks.

A dominant forward pack and a couple of classy halves saw the Sharkies establish themselves as one of the competition favourites through the regular season.

Ben Barba found his mojo again at fullback, while youngsters Jack Bird and Valentine Holmes had good seasons.

Cronulla were hurt over the Origin period with plenty of players missing game time, but in the end they did enough to secure a crucial top four finish.

Where they finished: 3rd

Best player: James Maloney

Best NRL Fantasy player: Andrew Fifita

Best recruit: James Maloney
