Gerard Beale

Kiwi international Gerard Beale and former Dragons and current Samoan utility Kyle Stanley have both agreed to join the Sharks ahead of the 2015 season.

The 24-year-old Beale was released from the final year of his contract with the St George Illawarra Dragons and has signed a three-year deal with the Sharks, while Stanley has come on board for the 2015 season.


Beale is a quality outside back, capable of playing in the centres, on the wing or at fullback, with Stanley an extremely handy utility with experience in a number of positions.

Stanley most recently filled the role of half back for the Samoan team during the Four Nations, while Beale played on the wing for New Zealand in their first round victory over Australia in the same Four Nations tournament some four weeks ago.

After completing his duties with the Kiwis Beale met with Cronulla officials and coaching staff before enjoying a tour of the facilities and signing his new contract with the club.
