Sharks coach Atiba Lyons paid tribute to his players after their season ended on Monday after defeat in the play-offs against Newcastle.
He said: “I told them I appreciated their hard work and the trust they put in me. When you’re losing it’s hard to stick to the system sometimes. Guys tend to lose their way but we stuck to it and the second half of the season it showed it worked.”
