    导出博客文章Cronulla have ended 50 years of heartache with a thrilling victory over Melbourne in Sundays NRL grand final, securing the Sharks their maiden premiership. .The Sharks dominated possession and territory but were made to work until the final siren by a champion Melbourne side who were forced into an extreme defensive workload.A try to Andrew Fifita inside the final 10 minutes put the Sharks back in front, but they were made to endure one final Storm charge on fulltime before they triumphed 14-12.I cant tell you how good I feel, Sharks skipper Paul Gallen told Channel Nine.I cant believe this, after all the hard work we have put it.It is incredible.The opening exchanges were typically ferocious of the occasion with retiring Sharks hooker Michael Ennis penalised for a high shot in just the second tackle. Storm winger Marika Koroibete squared the ledger a short while later but his swinging arm on Chad Townsend also gifted the Sharks the first chance at points, which James Maloney promptly slotted from the kicking tee.And it was Maloney who then created the first try-scoring opportunity of the grand final as the five-eighth cut through in midfield and offloaded to Luke Lewis. But the former Penrith stalwart was cut down before the line, his sliding body finishing centimetres short of the opening try.The Sharks wouldnt have to wait long for a four-pointer however as they earned a repeat set from a Suliasi Vunivalu error and then executed a smart scrum set-play that put Ben Barba over. Breaking from the back of the scrum, Gallen slipped an inside pass to Barba that caught the Storm napping. Maloney added the extras from close range, giving the Sharks an invaluable 8-0 lead.Unable to get themselves into the game, the Storm looked rudderless in attack with neither Cameron Smith nor Cooper Cronk able to assert themselves on the contest.A Smith knock-on five minutes out from the break saw the two teams comes together; Ennis slapping the Storm captain on the back immediately after the mistake - an action Jordan McLean objected to my shoving the Cronulla hooker to the deck.Somehow, the Storm managed to repel the Sharks for the final few minutes of the first half to go into the break down by only eight points. But they had suffered a heavy defensive toll, making an extra 75 tackles than their opponents to halftime.That trend continued in the early minutes of the second half, too, as the Sharks rumbled out from the sheds and again attacked the Storm line. But they couldnt add to their halftime lead, and the Storm remained in the contest.The Sharks soon paid the price for their inability to capitalise on a huge share of possession and territory as Jesse Bromwich rumbled over from close range to open Melbournes account. In what was their first real attack on the Sharks line, the Storm kept it simple and Bromwichs massive frame was too big to stop from close range. Smith made no mistake with the conversion and, somehow, the Storm trailed 8-6 after 51 minutes.But the 2012 champions continued to find themselves under the pump as the Sharks surged down field set after set, yet couldnt find a way to extend their lead as the game entered its final quarter.And then Cronulla found themselves behind.Having absorbed so much pressure, it was tough to think how the Storm had the energy to attack at all. But it certainly wasnt an issue for centre Will Chambers who scored a try worthy of the decider as he broke free of two defenders and then cut back inside to dive over. Smith again nailed the conversion from the right of the posts to give the Storm a 12-8 lead with 15 minutes to play.The drama was always going to continue and a large portion of the 83, 625 fans on hand were soon out of their seats as Fifita put the Sharks back in front. The prop, a constant talking point throughout the finals, proved too powerful for a trio of Storm defenders as he wrestled his way to the line and then produced an outstretched right arm to get the ball down underneath the posts. Maloneys conversion was good, and it was the Sharks leading 14-12 with 10 minutes to play.The final few minutes produced some great drama, before the Storms final surge fell agonisingly short.Skipper Cameron Smith was the Storms best, making 72 tackles.We werent that good in the first half, we allowed Cronulla to have so much field position, Smith said.This team, theyre a special footy side. You have to give them credit for coming back when they did. They kept plugging away, they didnt panic and deserved the win.Unfortunately it didnt go our way. It was a great finish.We could have scored in the last 10 seconds, a great scrambling effort by the Sharkies, everyone who follows rugby league have got to be happy for the Sharks. Theyve been waiting a very long time for this. . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. . JOHNS, N. . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season.Mike Ashley has called for the Scottish FA to make public the reasons for its decision to declare Dave King a fit and proper person. The governing body gave the South Africa-based businessman the green light to become chairman of the Championship winners in March of last year despite his problems with tax authorities in his homeland.King, a member of the board of oldco Rangers, which was consigned to liquidation in the summer of 2012, had previously admitted to 41 breaches of the South African Income Tax Act and agreed to pay a £43.7m settlement to avoid a fine or prison sentence. Sports Direct owner Ashley, who has close to a nine percent shareholding in the club, was keen to learn how the Scottish FA had come to its conclusion over his suitability for the post at Ibrox.However, on Thursday the Newcastle United owner decided to drop his legal action after receiving information on Kings finances which the SFA used when discussing his case last May. Dave King (centre) was declared a fit and proper person by the Scottish FA A statement issued by MASH Holdings, the company where Ashley holds his Rangers shares, read: We are delighted that the wall of secrecy surrounding the SFAs decision to declare Dave King a fit and proper person is finally crumbling.As a result of legal action concluded today, the SFA has been forced to divulge documents in private to us that reveal the true reasons behind this controversial decision.This represents a significant victory for MASH and we believe there is a strong public interest in this information now also being made available by the SFA to all football fans. We therefore urge the SFA to come clean with the public about all its dealings in relation to Dave King. But in a statement, the SFA made it clear the information on King was cleared to be made public by the Rangers chairman himself, rubbishing suggestions its hand had been forced. The statement read: Ordinarily, we would be loath to respond to such a disingenuous statement but in the interests of transparency and accuracy, it should be made abundantly clear it was MASH who today chose to abandon their ill-founded litigation.We have been consistent all along that the process of determining Mr Dave Kings Fit and Proper request, submitted via an amendment to Rangers FCs Official Return, was conducted in the correct and appropriate manner.Indeed, at the time, we outlined the unprecedented scale of the due diligence undertaken, befitting the complexities of the consideration placed before our Board. This was released to the media and stated that this diligence involved communication with the relevant authorities in South Africa and the United Kingdom. Dave King with the Rangers board and manager Mark Warburton As part of the recent litigation process, we elected - with the consent of Mr King - to provide certain confidential information expanding on our statement. There was never any obligation for us to do so and we were certainly never forced to do so. This is a matter of fact and legal record.It is regrettable that we found ourselves in an unnecessary Judicial Review process in the first place: one that serves only to absorb Scottish footballs time, money and human resource which could otherwise have been utilised for the good of the game. The same applies to responding to these unedifying comments.
