A grand final spot mightn’t be all the Sharks and Storm are fighting over.
According to The Australian, the Sharks have been linked to Storm star Cameron Munster, when he comes off contract at the end of 2019.
The story suggests that the Sharks are one of three sides Munster is contemplating playing for, with the other two being the Roosters, and his current club, the Storm.
The potential signing of Munster likely hinges on the Sharks’ ability to keep custodian Valentine Holmes. Should Holmes remain in the Shire, it’s unlikely the Sharks would have either the money or the position to accommodate Munster. If, on the other hand, Holmes heads to the Cowboys – as has been widely suggested – then Munster would likely become their top priority.
Munster has played 87 first grade games for the Storm, 4 Origins for Queensland, and 2 Tests for Australia.
