Ex-Hull FC star set to make big decision in NRL hot seat as Super League target in the firing line

Craig Fitzgibbon is one of the most accomplished players to ever grace Super League.

He made over 250 appearances in the NRL prior to leaving for Hull FC in 2010 in a major coup for the Black and Whites.

He added real pedigree to the squad and finished his career there in 2011.

It was a career that saw him play for New South Wales in State of Origin as well as representing Australia.

Meanwhile, he also played for NSW Country in City vs Country and represented the Exiles against England in 2011.

On retirement, Fitzgibbon would turn his attentions to coaching and soon returned to the Sydney Roosters as part of the coaching staff.

He would coach NSW Country and is now in the hot seat at the Cronulla Sharks and set to make a big decision.

Former Super League target Wade Graham, who was linked with a move to Catalans Dragons, is at the end of his career turning down a move to Super League to see out his career with the Sharks.

However, in the twilight of his career he will not play frequently meaning Fitzgibbon is reportedly set to take the captaincy off him in a big decision.

The bigger decision could be who gets the captaincy.

Dale Finucane is a good shout as the first choice 13 at the Sharks whilst Dally M Medal winner Nicho Hynes is an option.
