The Sharks have extended Briton Nikora’s deal for a further two seasons.

The Kiwi rookie was originally signed through until the end of 2020, the club has now locked down him down until the end of 2022.

Nikora was excited to commit his future to Cronulla.

“It’s very exciting and I’m grateful for the opportunity to stay at Cronulla. It’s a dream come true,” Nikora told the club website.

“I’m learning every day at training, learning from all the senior players.”

“I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me and the Sharks and I’m happy to be here and to be given the opportunity.”

Nikora has enjoyed a breakout 2019 campaign, missing just one game through suspension.

He begun training with the full-time squad in 2018 after a strong patch of form for the Newtown Jets, before going on to establish himself in the NRL side this season.

Nikora joins fellow youngsters Blayke Brailey, Jack Williams, Barden Hamlin Uele and Billy Magoulias in re-signing with the Sharks.

    There’s just so much size, experience, talent and depth. Compare that to my Warriors and our starting front rowrers really struggle to make that bench

    And that list leaves out Capewell and Williams. Finals hold plenty of promise if they keep their best side healthy and on deck

  3. Niiiccceee. That should keep any transit lounge or endless pocketed current premiers & world champs at bay. Exciting times ahead for the Sharkies. 🙂
