Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 2021 TV schedule, squad and team guide

The Sharks will be aiming for a fast start and some early scalps to build on last year's finals appearance.

The Sharks did reasonably well to make the finals last year given they failed to beat a top-eight side during the season. Rookie coach John Morris was forced to blood a bevy of youngsters and hopefully they will be much better this year.

No doubt the loss of playmaker Shaun Johnson (Achilles) for the first month of the season will hurt the Sharks. The injury-plagued Matt Moylan will need to step up in Johnson's absence in the five-eighth role. Former Bulldogs prop Aiden Tolman is the club's only big-name acquisition for this season and will add leadership to the pack.

Many pundits have predicted Morris will be the first coach to be sacked this year so he will be looking for a terrific start to help keep the knives at bay.

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks history

The Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks were admitted to the NSWRFL premiership, predecessor of the current NRL competition, in 1967. In other words, they have been competing for more than 53 years.

During this time, the Sharks have appeared in four grand finals. The team finally won their first premiership in 2016, after defeating the Melbourne Storm.

They usually play their home games at PointsBet Stadium. However, the stadium is currently undergoing reconstruction, so the Sharks are sharing Netstrata Jubilee Oval with the Dragons.
