Cronulla Sharks captain Paul Gallen could miss the rest of the season with scans this week to determine the extent of a bicep injury he picked up in the Sharks 31-18 loss at home to the Newcastle Knights.
Bicep injuries tend to be one of those rotten injuries that are never have a good outcome. It is rare that a player injures their bicep and doesn’t spend an extended period of time on the sidelines.
It is the last thing the Sharks need (I feel like I say that a lot about the poor old Sharks) as they look to avoid the wooden spoon in what is about the worst season any club could ever hope to have.
I think it would be a ridiculous decision for Daley, or any other coach for that matter, to even consider taking over the Sharks for the rest of the season. It is a no win situation that could turn very bad very quickly and really hurt a coaches reputation.
Shane Flanagan will be taking back his head coaching role at the club next season so it isn’t even as though there is an opportunity to cement a place at the club for any length of time.
Current interim coach James Shepherd seems happy enough to do the job. The Sharks should stick with him.
