Former NSW Origin halfback Trent Hodkinson has signed a one-year deal with the Cronulla Sharks after being released from his Newcastle Knights contract.
Hodkinson has played 156 NRL matches and adds experience as well as goal-kicking nous to a Sharks team packed with representative talent.
“The opportunity to sign Trent materialised when it became obvious he was going to negotiate a release and his addition to our squad will add to our depth and experience in the halves,” Sharks coach Shane Flanagan said.
“He’s fully aware he’s coming here as a back-up, but these days you need a real competitive 30-man squad with four halves but no only that, he fits our club in that he is a quality person off the field, someone who can enhance our community programs, while his leadership and experience will help with the development of our young halves Kyle (Flanagan) and Jack Williams.”
