    MANLY back-rower Adam Cuthbertson last night signed a two-year deal with the Sharks. 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.

    Knew it was coming. Although a shame, I can live with him out the door at the end of season.
    He could have at least picked a team that will be around in a couple of years though.

    Ox suggests he is willing to take a $100k per year paycut to $300k. So that's:-

    Cuthbertson gone
    Hall Gone
    JWH Gone
    Ox paycut $100k
    Bani downgrade to Farrar ($$$ wise anyways - hehehehe)

    I personally think Farrar may become our utility player next season. Ballin may play 80 minutes like Smith, Farrar and co.

    For that reason, I have a sense unfortunately that Le'Strange may go???

    13. Glenn Stewart

    14. Ben Farrar
    15. Jason King
    16. George Rose
    17. Tony Williams

    It also looks like a good, well balanced team imo.
