Valentine Holmes best on the wing for Cronulla Sharks: Andrew Ettingshausen - The Sydney Morning Herald

Cronulla legend Andrew Ettingshausen believes try-scoring machine Valentine Holmes can best serve the Sharks on the wing next season as the club ponders how best to utilise its new recruits.

Holmes has scored a tournament-high 12 tries in the Rugby League World Cup on the wing, three more than any other player. The 22-year-old scored a record six tries against Fiji last weekend and has the opportunity to add to the tally in the final against England at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

The unprecedented scoring streak has raised fresh questions about where he is best suited at club level. Holmes re-signed with the Sharks with a view to playing in the No.1 jersey following the departure of Ben Barba. However, the Sharks have recruited Matt Moylan and Josh Dugan in the off-season, who have...

Flanagan: Holmes is Sharks No.1 - NRL.COM

He was the World Cup’s leading try scorer on the wing for Australia but his NRL club is keeping Valentine Holmes at fullback.

Cronulla Sharks coach Shane Flanagan has confirmed there will be no positional switch in the Telstra Premiership for his talented speedster. 

“The speculation about Val comes because of how good he plays on the wing, not how poorly he plays at fullback,” Flanagan told NRL.com.

Conjecture about Holmes’s future at the Sharks began swirling because he scored just six tries last season after his move to the No.1 jersey following Ben Barba’s departure to French rugby union. That compared unfavourably with the 19 tries Holmes notched on the left wing in the 2016 premiership-winning campaign.

Over the past six weeks for the Kangaroos, he crossed 12 times to be crowned the 14-nation tournament’s top try scorer ahead of Fijian flanker Suliasi Vunivalu (9) and England...

Exclusive: Paul Gallen still can't believe Sharks' luck in landing Dugan - Sporting News

This is the eighth column Sharks captain Paul Gallen has written for Sporting News. You can read what started the war of words between himself and Nathan Brown here.

St George Illawarra rarely do big brother Cronulla a favour – but I’d like to publicly thank them now for a huge act of generosity.

It’s not often a player of Test and Origin standard is hand-delivered to your front door, but that’s exactly what the Dragons did in letting Josh Dugan walk out to join the Sharks.

One of the game’s best players – an international-quality centre or fullback  - in the prime of his career.     

Dugan’s form in the centres for Australia has been unbelievable for a couple of years now.

Defensively he is outstanding and in attack he is a real handful.

Dugan's best still to come: Flanagan

Cronulla Sharks recruit Josh Dugan is entering the point of his career when his best playing days are still ahead of him, according to new club coach Shane Flanagan.

A regular in the NSW and Australian teams over the past two years, Dugan also seems to be ironing out the tag of being an injury-prone player. 

He missed only four games for the St George Illawarra Dragons last season, compared with six in 2016. He had several stints on the sidelines during his formative years at Canberra where he made 70 NRL appearances in four seasons.

Now the 27-year-old is off to his third NRL club on a four-year deal at the Sharks. And he will arrive after a successful World Cup campaign with the Kangaroos scoring two tries and setting up five others in the five Tests he played at...

Matt Moylan will be Cronulla Sharks five-eighth, says coach Shane Flanagan - The Sydney Morning Herald

Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan has pencilled in new signing Matt Moylan to be his five-eighth but admits the team could change again as the club waits on the status of Mitchell Pearce.

The Sharks confirmed the arrival of Moylan on Thursday, almost three months after the former Penrith captain missed this year's NRL finals due to personal issues.

Flanagan pointed out James Maloney had yet to be announced as a Panther, but indicated Moylan would wear the No.6 jumper next season.

But Flanagan also refused to rule out making a play for Pearce, whose future at the Sydney Roosters remains unclear following the arrival of Kangaroos halfback Cooper Cronk.

He expects an answer by the end of the month.

Flanagan reveals his Sharks No.1 for 2018 - Yahoo7 Sport

Cronulla Sharks coach Shane Flanagan has decided to ignore popular opinion and astonishing statistics by picking his fullback for next season.

Flanagan will continue to nurture Valentine Holmes at fullback despite statistics showing the Rugby League World Cup try machine is three times more potent on the wing.

Flanagan appeared to face a tough decision ahead of the 2018 NRL season after Holmes shone on the wing for Australia, scoring a tournament high 12 World Cup tries including 11 in two games.

It extended Holmes' incredible hit rate in the position.

According to Fox Sports Stats, Holmes has scored 36 tries on the wing in 39 games for Cronulla, Queensland and Australia in the past two seasons - just under one per game.

In his 21 games at fullback he has scored just six times - under once every three games.

He has also made almost three times as many linebreaks (37 to 13) on...
