The Sharks were also able to confirm recent reports that they have secured the services of Australian Rugby Sevens star Locky Miller on a two-year contract.
Competing for Australia on the international rugby sevens circuit in recent years, Miller had a long-held desire to return to rugby league, the game he had played on the NSW north coast until the age of 22.
After being impressed by the pitch made by Fitzgibbon, Miller rejected an offer from the LA Giltinis Rugby Club in the US and from rival NRL teams to sign with the Sharks.
With speed and footwork, where Miller might fit into the Sharks set up remains to be seen, however with some making comparisons to Knights and now Roosters utility Connor Watson, his versatility will be a bonus.
“I’ve been watching the NRL and the Sharks just seem like a really good fit. Craig is a really good coach, really easy to get along with. That was one of the main selling points,” Miller told the SMH.
“In terms of position, we’ll get into pre-season and really give it a crack and see where I go from there. He (Fitzgibbon) appreciates I can play in the spine, but also attack out wide if I need to.”
