Paulo joins Sharks after released by Eels

Joseph Paulo has signed with Cronulla after he was released from the final year of his Parramatta contract.

The Sharks picked up the Samoa and USA international on a two-year NRL deal after he was told by the Eels he was free to negotiate with rival clubs.

“Joseph is a skilful player and he will be a welcome addition to our squad,” Sharks coach Shane Flanagan said.

“We’re putting together a strong roster ahead of 2016 and Paulo will only add to what we’re looking to build at the club for next season and beyond.”

The back-rower moved to Parramatta from Penrith in 2011 and played 86 NRL games in the blue and gold.

Paulo led the USA to a surprise quarter-final berth at the 2014 Rugby League World Cup but had an indifferent 2015, spending time in reserve grade.
