Already signed on until 2024, Nicho Hynes wasted no time in securing his future at the Cronulla Sharks after signing a new long term deal.
Hynes new deal will see him remain on the Shire until the end of 2029 with the club understandably ecstatic to retain Hynes for as long as they have.
The relationship Hynes has formed with coach Craig Fitzgibbon is believed to have made the deal smoother in its process.
“Having recently extended Craig as well was a big contributor to his decision and to now have Nicho and the coach on board long term is a huge positive for the NRL team and our Club,” Sharks Chairman Steve Mace said.
For Hynes, he admits it that it has not quite yet sunk in that he has his long term future for he and his family sorted.
“It’s pretty surreal, it hasn’t sunk in yet,” Hynes said upon signing the contract.
“I never thought I’d sign a long term contract in the NRL, one that’s hopefully going to set up my life and my family as well.”
Hynes’ aim now is to focus on his footy and guide the Sharks side towards a premiership during his time there.
