Cronulla captain Paul Gallen believes the Sharks’ lack of big name players will not prove to be a handicap if they play as a team.
As the Sharks look to erase the memory of two miserable seasons, Gallen says they will have to make the best of their resources.
“The last couple of years have been pretty tough for us,” said Gallen.
“We could not have signed any better players, especially given the position the club has been in.
“What we have learned in the past seasons is that it doesn’t matter what names you have and what you have done before, you have to go out and play as a team. That’s where we fell down at Cronulla during the season.”
Meanwhile, Gallen has a good chance of appearing for the NRL Allstars in their clash with an Indigenous Allstars team at Skilled Park on February 13.
