The Sharks have received a massive boost heading into Sunday's stoush with the Titans by signing rising stars Will Kennedy and Toby Rudolf.
Kennedy has been one of the most-improved players in the Telstra Premiership over the past 12 months while Rudolf rejected overtures from Canterbury to commit to Cronulla.
Rudolf will remain at the club until the end of 2024 while Kennedy has inked a two-year extension.
"The retention of both Will Kennedy and Toby Rudolph is fantastic news for the club," interim coach Josh Hannay said.
"Both players have been standouts this year for us and their performances are a reflection of the work and dedication they put in over the pre-season and continue to do so day in day out.
"Both are a great example of two young men getting the best out of themselves and I have no doubt the best as yet to come for Will and Toby, with their commitment to the club showing their faith and belief in the direction that the club is heading."
