Cronulla Sharks young gun Teig Wilton has signed a new three-year deal which will see him remain in the Shire until at least 2023.

“He’s a super kid, good character, well respected by his peers, trains really hard and lives by the values of the club,” Sharks head coach John Morris said on the club website.

“He’s a highly rated rookie, he’s come through our system, SG Ball, he won a Jersey Flegg premiership, Captained NSW 20’s last year, played for the Jets.

“His signing is exciting news for the club.”

Wilton represented NSW Country Under 16’s, NSW Origin 18’s and was twice in the Blues 20’s side, the second of those two years as team captain.

“It was a massive move for me to come up here but the club has given me so much, especially coming through the grades,” Wilton said.

“When I was coming off contract I really just wanted to stay at Cronulla. I love all the staff, the players, the people. It’s an honour to play for the Sharks.”

  1. His manager will be demanding an upgrade in 12 months or else wanting an immediate release for family reasons so he can get more money elsewhere. Signed to 2023 means nothing.

  2. What is his best position? The Sydney Roosters have every position covered, assuming Latrell departs the Roosters I think another centre would be the next target for talent. Xerrie must be on their radar.

  3. He’s a back rower but could also easily play centre. Good replacent for Aubusson when he retires next year.

  4. Wilton has come through the grades at Cronulla. Loves being at Cronulla & has signed on there for 3 years.
    Yet the timber Nugget , thinks he’ll automatically want to go to the Nuggets for no real reason? Clearly in recent times , many players have rejected offers from that club. Some others have also left there.
    So dream on!

  5. C’mon ClownOfDivide. You are deluded if you believe “many players” have rejected offers from the Roosters. Nobody rejects the Roosters. The Roosters reject them. Just ask Latrell. Hahahahaha.
