In what could be the last deal of his career, Andrew Fifita has re-signed with the Cronulla Sharks long-term on a new four-year deal.
The new deal is from the 2019 season until the end of the 2022 season with Fifita already contracted to the Sharks in 2018.
The new contract is one that Fifita is pleased to have signed.
“It’s a really exciting time for myself and my family, to secure my future for another five years,” Fifita said.
“Now it’s all done and I can’t wait to play footy.”
Pleased to have his future sorted, Fifita says everything about the club is what made him want to stay long-term.
“Its culture, its youth and some of the experience that helped me along in my journey,” he continued.
“It was an opportunity and I grabbed it with both hands.”
The signing was backed by coach Shane Flanagan who knows how good Fifita is and to know that he can build a side around the barnstorming prop.
“We’ve all seen the growth in Andrew off the field and his football has gone to a new level as well over the last couple of seasons,” said the Sharks coach.
“He is a match-winner, as we saw in the Grand Final and then again in the first Origin game and to have him here at the club for a further five years is very exciting.”
