John Morris honoured to coach Cronulla

Cronulla’s new interim coach John Morris says he is immensely proud to take up the role.

The former Sharks player, who finished his playing career with 300 NRL games under his belt, took to Instagram to express his delight at being appointed interim coach of the club.

And the former Newcastle Knights, Parramatta Eels and Wests Tigers star is looking forward to the challenge of being an NRL head coach.

On Instagram, he wrote: “This was the last time I pulled on a jumper for my beloved Cronulla Sharks.

“Running out with my two boys in my 300thNRL game was the pinnacle of my playing career. Today I commence a new journey after being named interim head coach of the Cronulla Sharks.

“To say I am proud and honoured to be given this opportunity is an understatement. Thanks for everyone’s messages of support over the last 24 hours.

“I cannot wait to rip into our preparation for the 2019 season and lead a fine group of players and staff.”

Morris was appointed interim coach on Thursday, with Jim Dymock remaining as assistant coach after Shane Flanagan’s indefinite ban for breaching the conditions of his previous suspension following Cronulla’s peptide scandal.
