Sharks fans could be one step closer to winning their elusive first premiership after coach Ricky Stuart signed a deal keeping him at Cronulla until 2011.

The one-time premiership winning coach put pen to paper yesterday to make the long-term deal official nearly 14-months after the roosters showed him the nearest exit.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Stuart devulged the secret ingredient which he is banking on bringing a premiership to the club for the first time since it was established back in 1967.

"The main strength of our footy team is the youth coming through. That's the backbone to our quest in going forward," Stuart said.

Should Stuart win a title for the club by 2011, the future of the facebook group 'Cronulla Sharks to win a premiership before I die" will probably need to be addressed.

Stuart's contract renewal means 5 coaches left on the market. It's doubtful Des Hasler (Manly) will be going anywhere given the incredible success he's achieved in four seasons.

That leaves question marks hanging over the futures of Graham Murray (Cowboys), Steve Folkes (Bulldogs), Nathan Brown (Dragons) and Tim Sheens (Wests Tigers). - Read More, Here
