It appears that Cronulla Sharks forward Taulima Tautai has walked out on the team and will head to the English Super League for 2011.

Rumour has it that Tautai hasn’t been at pre-season training annd  is upset with coach Shane Flanagan. Flanagan apparently will not guarantee him a bench sport and has told him he will start 2011 playing in NSW Cup.

Tautai, the former Parramatta Eels winger, spent 2010 with the Sharks and moved from the back line into the forwards towards to the end of the season. He was quite effective off the bench and was expected to be get more minutes there next season.

Tautai was re-signed by the Sharks for 2011 in September.
