Valentine Holmes

Cronulla Sharks fans keep asking me why boom fullback Valentine Holmes doesn’t get a crack in the top side.

The Sharks are attempting to extend Holmes beyond the end of next season, with rival clubs more than a little interested in poaching him.

I’m being told that Holmes won’t get a chance in top company until he re-signs, with the Sharks determined not to be ‘burnt’ by a young player who makes a name for himself at the club and then moves on, as they were with hooker Michael Lichaa.
