Perhaps their form player this season other than Nicho Hynes, the Cronulla Sharks have backed Will Kennedy for a couple more years with his new deal.
Kennedy, who has come through the Sharks system all the way, has been rewarded with a new two year deal at the club.
It was the culture of the club, what they are building and the chance to continue working alongside the group of coaches that made his decision an easy one.
“I’ve been here since my SG Ball days and I love the club, the culture we have here and have close relationships with the players here at the Sharks,” Kennedy said.
“With the playing group we have and under the coaching of Fitzy (Craig Fitzgibbon), Steve Price, Josh Hannay and DJ (Daniel Holdsworth) I think we are building something special here and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Kennedy drew praise from coach Craig Fitzgibbon who knows that his teammates trust the fullback to perform consistently and as a part of the team.
“Will is a player who works very hard at his game and his continued improvement and development is evidence of that,” Fitzgibbon said.
“He has come through our pathways, winning an SG Ball and NSW Cup competition along the way and is a valuable member of our team, trusted by his teammates and it is definitely a boost that he has re-signed and made the decision to remain at the Club for a further two years.”
