Sharks skipper Paul Gallen will extend his NRL career with the Cronulla Sharks into a 18th season after signing a one-year contract extension at Sharks Leagues Club today.

Gallen put pen to paper on the new deal in the company of Sharks Group CEO Lyall Gorman and his manager David Riolo, a contract which will see him remain at the helm of the Cronulla club in 2017.

The signing has ended months of speculation with Gallen pleased to now be able to fully concentrate on Friday night and the Sharks clash with the Cowboys.
