Sharks appoint caretaker coaches

Cronulla have installed assistants John Morris and Jim Dymock as their caretaker NRL coaches after the provisional deregistration of Shane Flanagan.

Sharks CEO Barry Russell said the club will be appealing the $800,000 fine imposed on them by the NRL with the hope of reducing the amount, but it was up to Flanagan whether he appeals his ban.

"I've got confidence in them for the time being," captain Paul Gallen said of the assistant coaches on Wednesday.
