NRL 2021: 'I'm your man' - Shaun Johnson shops himself to other clubs after hitting game-winning field goal for Sharks against Panthers

Shaun Johnson is openly touting his services to other NRL clubs, following his decisive field goal to hand Cronulla Sharks a 19-18 victory over Penrith Panthers on Friday.

Former NZ Warriors halfback Johnson, 30, is one of several high-profile Sharks players to be told he won't be needed at Cronulla in 2022, as the team look to rebuild under new coach Craig Fitzgibbon.

But that didn't stop the Kiwis international from playing the hero in the Sharks' victory, slotting a last-gasp field goal to condemn the Panthers to back-to-back defeats.

Speaking to Channel Nine after the Sharks' victory, Johnson made it clear that he's on the market for a new club.

"I got the news a couple weeks back and it obviously wasn't the news I wanted to hear," he said.

"I had hopes of seeing my career out at this club. They gave me an opportunity three years ago. 

I have certainly enjoyed my time here. So, it's not meant to be; they want to head in a different direction, I really do respect that.

"But for me all I can focus on is coming out here, getting some games under my belt, and trusting that next year will take care of itself. 

"Tonight hopefully helps and if there are any clubs out there that are after a halfback, I'm your man." 

The win moves the Sharks into 10th on the NRL ladder, having won their last three consecutive matches.

Meanwhile, the Panthers stay top of the table, two points clear of second-placed Melbourne Storm.
