Absolutely bloody fantastic !!!!!!
I grew up in 'The Shire' and as we were part of the St George district at that time I was fortunate enough to celebrate eleven straight grand final wins on the trot, from 1956 to 1966. And yes, I'm an old fart.
However, being a fairly parochial sort of a bloke, when the Sharks entered the first grade comp in 1967 I felt obliged to switch my allegiance. In hindsight, that was a decision that has given me much angst.
Tonight my decision was vindicated, albeit after forty nine long suffering years.
Congratulations to Paul Gallen and his Shark teammates for winning a tough tussle with the Storm for the 2016 NRL title.
Well done lads !!!!
