Cuthbertson confirmed he would shift to the Shire next year and was keen to further his career and shoot for representative glory under Ricky Stuart. The 24-year-old was selected for City last month but was forced to pull out after he tore ligaments in his elbow. "I'm not leaving Manly on bad terms. I've been there since I was 15," Cuthbertson said. "I just see the move to Cronulla as a new opportunity and fresh start. "I want to be established as a starting player and, in terms of representative duties, it will be hard to make those sides when I'm coming off the bench. "I sat down and had a talk with Ricky about where he was at with his team. There's a young pack there and he seemed to be excited to have me." Cuthbertson was not fazed by Cronulla's spot on the ladder or the constant drama away from the field. The Avalon junior, who missed a start in the Sea Eagles' Grand Final win last season, said the premiers were starting to gain momentum and he wanted to finish 2009 on a high.
