  • Are the sharks really that gullabile???

    Cronulla's $200,000 lemon
    By James Hooper
    October 19, 2008 KARLOS Filiga was the NRL rookie recruited to Cronulla on a $600,000 contract and billed as the next Sonny Bill Williams.

    By his own admission, Filiga has been the equivalent of a brand new luxury car with an off-key motor - all show and not much go.

    While he looked sensational in the shop window at the Bulldogs, the Junior Kiwi has continually broken down at the Sharks. In the first year of a three-year contract he played just 11 minutes in the NRL, against Penrith in round 13.

    Filiga has met with Sharks coach Ricky Stuart and was told to produce next season or risk having the final year of his $200,000-a-season deal torn up.

    "I didn't earn what I'm on now this year at all, I owe the club big time," Filiga said. "Me and Sticky have had a meeting and he told me if I don't perform next year then the final year of my deal will be in doubt.

    "He just told me straight, 'we're paying you a lot of money and it's not fair on the other guys' if I'm not playing first grade. I've set my goals for next year, it's make or break for me."

    Recruited by the Bulldogs from New Zealand at 15, the backrower or centre has promised to sharpen his act next season - beginning with no pre-season short cuts.

    Cronulla remain aggrieved with player agent Gavin Orr for labelling Filiga the "next Sonny Bill Williams" when they signed him last May.

    "I tried to tell Gavin Orr not to put the Sonny Bill Williams tag on him because it was too much pressure and he was not up to that level at that stage," Stuart said.
    They spent $200,000 on this kid just cause the Agent said he was the next SBW????

    At a football club, there’s a holy trinity – the players, the manager and the supporters. Directors don’t come into it. They are only there to sign the cheques.

    When they said he was the next $BW, I guess the Sharks didn't think they meant he was expensive, injury prone, and not worth the cash...

    But when you look at it.............
    No sir, I don't like it.

      You should always hire players who are willing to flee the country without a moments notice!

        Well they must be. I don't think I've seen the guy play so I can't really comment on that but what business would employ someone on so much money just because they say they are the next someone?

        I mean - you wouldn't see 2GB employ someone on so much money who has done a couple of years Community Radio just because they say (or there manager does) they are the next Ray Hadley would you? No wonder the Sharks are struggling.
