Sharks set to bite again for the 2017 NRL Premiership

nrl cronulla sharksThe Cronulla Sharks climbed the NRL Grand Final premiership mountain to defeat the Melbourne Storm in a thrilling match last night in Sydney.

It took 50 years, but it won’t take another half a century for the Sharks to add to their newly-filled trophy cabinet according to the 2017 odds with bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

The Sharks have been installed at $9.00 to do it all again next year and defend their title, while Melbourne is $8.00 to exact revenge, bearing in mind they’ll be able to slot Billy Slater into their line-up.

North Queensland missed out this year, but the Cowboys are the $6.00 favourites to win the 2017 premiership as their young superstars Kalyn Ponga and Coen Hess get more game time under their belts.

Brisbane is at $7.00 and will no doubt be popular with punters over the off season.

Newcastle is given next to no chance as the $251 rank outsiders but Knights fans will probably think it’s worth a lazy dollar or two.

“Come to think of it, the Sharks could struggle for the next 50 years due to the length of the celebrations in the Shire but who could blame them?” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
