His versatility has been a big asset for the Cronulla Sharks in 2021 and the from of Connor Tracey has seen him re-sign for a further three years.
Tracey, who is a Sharks local, is excited to be staying by on at the club he calls home.
“It’s obviously exciting times to be able to sort my future out,” Tracey said.
“I played a lot of games here as a junior, it’s super exciting to be staying here.
“I can’t wait and I’m looking forward to it.”
Although he may have his own individual preferences, Tracey is happy to play wherever he is needed in the Sharks backline.
“I get asked a lot, a lot of different people ask what my best position is, but I just take it week by week,” Tracey continued.
”The more I think of that, the less I’m going to be focussing on the position I have to play for the team.”
“If I get put on the wing, I’ll learn how to do that, centre the same thing.
”Anything in the backs I’m pretty happy with.”
Tracey’s career was almost halted by two ACL injuries that that threatened his chances.
Though after a debut with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, and now a lengthy Sharks stint, Tracey has not looked back.
“It’s these traits that make Connor an extremely popular and respected member of the squad and I know I speak on behalf of everyone involved in our football program when I say how happy we are to have him commit to the club for a further three years,” interim Sharks coach Hannay said.
