David Fifita

In recognition of their improvement and progress during the 2014 season, the Cronulla Sharks have moved quickly to secure the services of winger Jacob Gagan and front rower David Fifita for a further two years.

Late yesterday the pair signed new deals which will see them remain at the Sharks until at least the end of the 2016 season.

Current Sharks NRL coach James Shepherd was pleased to see Fifita and Gagan come to terms with the club and looked forward to seeing their continued development.

“They are both players of promise and its great to see the club has given them an opportunity to fulfill their potential,” Shepherd said. “David has battled some injuries this year but made his NRL debut and handled it well, while Jacob has also had his chance in the top grade and has grabbed it with both hands.

“They both deserve the contract upgrades and the next step is for them to try to cement permanent positions in the NRL team.”
