Sharks take cautious approach with Graham
Cronulla coach Josh Hannay said the club will do the right thing by Wade Graham after the Sharks skipper suffered yet another concussion in the NRL clash with Penrith.
Questions have been raised about the immediate playing future of the 30-year-old after he copped his fourth head knock of the season on Friday while attempting to make a low tackle on Penrith's Rob Jennings.
Hannay said the club would look at an extended rest for Graham, who missed a fortnight earlier this season after two concussions in 15 days.
He failed to finish a third game, in round eight, once he returned, with Friday night's knock causing him to stumble and appear groggy on his feet.
Although Graham is understood to have passed the head injury assessment once he was taken from the field, he showed category-one symptoms of a concussion on the field and was immediately ruled out of the game.
Hannay said Graham appeared fine in the sheds following the 19-18 win against the Panthers but his tackling technique is something to be addressed.
"It's been a similar incident each time, trying to make a low tackle and getting his head in the wrong position," Hannay said.
