Cronulla Sharks to wear special jersey to commemorate Paul Gallen's final home game next month

Cronulla will honour Paul Gallen's last ever home game with a commemorative jersey.

Made by the club's kit providers xBlades, the Sharks will wear the strip when they host Canberra at PointsBet Stadium in round 24 on September 1 as they say farewell to Gal.

The jersey features a printed photo of Gallen lifting the 2016 premiership trophy as well as a long list of the 37-year-old's career achievements.

The kit is available to buy from the Sharks website.

Gallen will finish on 347 appearances for Cronulla should he play in their final five regular season matches. That number could climb higher should the Sharks reach the finals.

Gallen, who captained Cronulla to their historic maiden premiership, will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the club's greatest ever players.

Meanwhile, Cronulla have announced the re-signing of the Mulitalo brothers.

Ronaldo Mulitalo has made four NRL appearances on the wing for Cronulla so far this season and shunned reported interest from a handful of rivals clubs to sign a two-year contract extension with the Sharks.

Twin brother Lorenzo has graduated to the club's under-20s Jersey Flegg team in recent weeks and has signed a training contract for the 2020 pre-season with Cronulla.

Depending on his progress, Lorenzo could also be part of the Sharks squad in the future.

The 19-year-olds from Ipswich in Queensland have developed at different paces at the Sharks.

Ronaldo, who represented Queensland under-20s this season, made his NRL debut against Brisbane in round seven. He originally attended a Sharks development camp before later coming down to Sydney to play the club's SG Ball team. Having also played for the Maroons at under-18s level, Ronaldo overcame injury problems early in his Sharks career before reaching the NRL.

Lorenzo had a slow start to 2019 before becoming a regular in Cronulla's Jersey Flegg side, who sit top of the table with four rounds to play.
