Incoming Sharks coach, Craig Fitzgibbon, has informed Shaun Johnson, Aaron Woods & Josh Dugan they are not needed next year. All are off contract at the end of 2021.

Buzz:

The rumour will not go away that veteran halfback Mitchell Pearce could finish up at the Cronulla Sharks next season, despite the fact he recently signed a one-year extension at the Newcastle Knights.
He is certainly highly regarded by incoming coach Craig Fitzgibbon. The Knights recently signed Cowboys halfback Jake Clifford.

Manly and Parramatta have made a play for prop Aaron Woods after he was told by incoming Sharks coach Craig Fitzgibbon he isn’t wanted for next season.

The Sea Eagles and Eels have both spoken to Woods this past week as they seek to bolster their respective forward packs for 2022. Fitzgibbon had a face-to-face meeting with Woods to let him know the Sharks were “moving in a different direction” next year.

Woods, who is in the final year of a three-year deal worth $600,000 annually, is understood to have offered to stay at Cronulla for just $180,000 next year, but Fitzgibbon was clear there was no space for him.

Woods, 30, can expect to earn more than $200,000 wherever he lands next; a big pay-cut from where he’s at but still enough to keep him in Australia and attempt to reignite his career under a new coach.

Melbourne Storm have signed NSW Waratahs centre Tepai Moeroa on an immediate short-term deal that will see the 25-year-old join the NRL premiers immediately.

St George Illawarra have advised Gareth Widdop's manager they would not stand in the way of Canberra or the Warriors signing the former Dragons captain if he returns from England before the end of the season.

Just heard on Kayo that Brisbane have given TPJ permission to look elsewhere for next year & possibly even sooner.

Yep. Tipped to join the Tuggers. Why not, they seem to be able to sign anyone they want, such as Maumalo, even though they have 34 players already contracted.
