2. Sam Tagataese
The Samoan international has been a huge part of Cronulla’s rise to the top of the table in 2016, and will be a hot commodity if he remains un-signed heading into the off season.
The 29-year-old has featured in every game for the Sharks this season and is playing some of his best footy in recent memory, something that will help Tagataese find himself a new deal going forward.

It would be hard to see him leave Shark Park after the season they’ve had, but a bigger money deal would have to give Tagataese a tough choice.
