Sharks still in the dark over Lewis

Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan said last night that, as far as he was aware, Luke Lewis still hadn't made a decision on which club he would play for next season.

Lewis was last night shown in a Channel Nine news report house-hunting in the Cronulla district yesterday, which strengthened speculation the NSW and Australian forward will join the Sharks when his time at Penrith runs out.

But, according to Flanagan, the Sharks are still waiting to find out what Lewis is going to do.

''I would love to have something to say about Luke and our club,'' Flanagan said. ''But he hasn't done anything with us at this stage and we haven't been informed that he has done anything anywhere else. I'm sure we would be informed out of courtesy if Luke had made a decision to join a different club.

''As far as I know, he is still making up his mind.''

Lewis rocked the league world this month when he applied for - and was granted - a release from the final year of his contract with the Panthers. He is playing out the rest of this season with Penrith before moving on.

The player's manager, Greg Willett, said in the Herald on Monday he hoped a decision would be made by yesterday, but it is obviously taking longer than expected.

Cronulla, Wests Tigers, Parramatta, Newcastle and Canberra were the clubs considered to be in the running to get the prized signature, with the Sharks and Tigers favourites. Lewis has good friends at both clubs.

There are suggestions Lewis is planning to live in Cronulla even if he doesn't join the Sharks, but the sight of him looking at houses is bound to get Cronulla fans excited.
