The Sharks have entered into a significant partnership, one which will provide a direct pathway to the NRL for young Fijian players.

The partnership will be between the Sharks and the Kaiviti Silktails, the recently launched team which has been accepted into the NSWRL’s Ron Massey Cup competition in 2020.

The agreement will see the Sharks become the Silktails NRL partner club for the next three years, with the pathway to see Fijian players given the opportunity go from their local Vodafone Cup competition, to the Kaiviti Silktails and the NSWRL Ron Massey Cup, then potentially to the Canterbury Cup and to the NRL.

Similarly, for female players, Kaiviti Silktails women can progress to the Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership with the Sharks.

Petero Civoniceva, an ambassador for the Silktails, was present at Wednesday’s announcement, with the former Origin and Kangaroo representative excited about the partnership and the prospects for Fijian players.
