A contract dispute between Wade Graham and the Cronulla Sharks could cost the premiers one of their key forwards, according to Fox Sports.
Graham’s contract negotiations with the club have hit a standstill over a pay dispute worth $25,000.
The NSW back-rower has been very keen on re-signing but will now test his value on the open market.
The Sharks are tabling a two-year deal worth around $1.4 million.
With an ageing pack, losing one of their bright younger talents would be a major blow to the reigning premiers who are also in danger of losing weapon centre Jack Bird.
