Sharks backline shuffle: Josh Dugan switched to fullback as Valentine Holmes moves to wing

THE Cronulla Sharks will play Josh Dugan at fullback against his old club St George Illawarra with Valentine Holmes to be shifted to the wing in tomorrow night’s local derby.

But Sharks coach Shane Flanagan has made the unexpected claim that the pair will in fact share the number one duties, saying on Wednesday: “I think it’ll work well and we did it in the trials so it’s nothing new.”

After a tough night under the high ball in the Sharks’ Round 1 loss to North Queensland, the Cronulla coach has made the decision to “let the pressure off” Holmes

Cronulla are also looking to replace injured rookie right winger Sione Katoa, who suffered a broken jaw against the Cowboys.
