Cronulla Sharks: Our mistakes, not those of the ref, cost us - The Sydney Morning Herald

Cronulla players have taken responsibility for the shock loss to North Queensland, admitting their mistakes – not those of the referee – are the reason they didn't defend their title.

The fallout from an exciting and controversial opening weekend of the finals continues after Cronulla and Manly were issued breach notices of $30,000 and $20,000 respectively for their coach's criticism of match officials.

Sharks coach Shane Flanagan, livid after several close calls went against his side, aired his grievances immediately after the match and again via other media outlets. The NRL maintains its officials got the majority of close calls correct but, regardless, it was time to "grow up" and end the culture of referee bashing.

Sharks coach Shane Flanagan opens up: 'I owe the game an apology' - NEWS.com.au

CRONULLA coach Shange Flanagan has sent out an open letter to fans apologising for his behaviour after the Sharks’ elimination final loss against the North Queensland Cowboys in the first week of NRL finals.

The 51-year-old came to the post-match press conference with a pre-prepared list of grievances and slammed the referees in a heated rant. The devastated coach joined Manly coach Trent Barrett in a disappointing weekend of blaming refs after both spiralling out of the season.

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg called for more maturity from the game’s coaches after the back-to-back blow-ups, claiming an ugly culture had gripped the sport.

“Unfortunately in this game we’ve developed a culture of blaming match officials for a loss,” Greenberg said.

“It sets a terrible example to fans and a terrible example to grassroots and it’s got to stop. It’s time for the game to grow up.”

NRL 2017: Sharks captain Paul Gallen toys with idea of 19th NRL ... - Fox Sports

WITH the prestigious Monty Porter Medal around his neck as Cronulla’s player of the year, captain Paul Gallen won’t rule out a record-breaking 19th NRL season.

Having also received the Tommy Bishop Award on Monday at the Sharks’ presentation night, after being judged the best by his peers, the 36-year-old Gallen knows he’s good enough to play on.

This year’s NRL stats back that up. Gallen led the competition in most runs (484), most hit-ups (432) along with his 4582 metres — second only to Dally M co-winner Jason Taumalolo — alongside 57 tackle busts, 53 offloads and two tries.

The former Australian vice-captain and NSW State of captain has already signed a one-year deal for 2018 but says he won’t shut the door on 2019.

Phil Gould reveals where Sharks coach Shane Flanagan went so ... - NEWS.com.au

PENRITH back-rower Trent Merrin insists injured skipper Matt Moylan loves the NRL club and won’t be leaving amid rumours of a rift with teammates.

The former NSW forward was adamant Moylan would be staying with the club at the foot of the Blue Mountains for the 2018 NRL season, despite reports he was intent on heading to Manly to play under former Penrith assistant Trent Barrett next year.

“He loves the place, he doesn’t want to go anywhere, that’s the feedback I’m getting from him, so it’s all positive from my end,” Merrin told Sky Sports Radio on Thursday.

Moylan missed the Panthers’ finals campaign after taking time out to deal with personal issues, but Merrin was adamant there had not been a falling out within the playing group.

“It’s just all rumours. I’m not too sure what people are saying but us as players, we know what Moyza is, and how much he means to this team, and that’s...

Cronulla Sharks assistant Steve Price is the new favourite to be the ... - Warrington Guardian

CRONULLA Sharks assistant Steve Price has emerged as the strong favourite to fill Tony Smith’s position at Warrington Wolves, according to bookmakers Betfred.

Price, the former head coach of St George Illawarra Dragons, is now the 7/4 favourite with the Birchwood-based bookmaker to be the next Wire boss.

Wolves chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick returned from Australia, where he has been meeting potential candidates, on Tuesday.

Former Wigan and South Sydney head coach Michael Maguire and ex-Bradford coach Geoff Toovey had initially been joint favourites, but Maguire is now 2/1 second-favourite while Toovey has drifted to 9/2.

Two more NRL assistants in Garth Brennan (3/1) and Dean Pay (6/1) feature highly, while recently-departed Canterbury Bulldogs coach Des Hasler (8/1) is a new face in the betting along with ex-Wigan man David Furner and Penrith Panthers head coach Anthony Griffin...
