A shark on the NSW mid-north coast has apologised for an attack this week, saying that he got “caught up in the Grand Final spirit.”
In an emotional interview, the Shark has told Broken News that he is mortified to know that he inflicted such serious injuries on a local surfer, and admitted that his patriotism for the NRL Grand Final went “a step too far.”
“It was a stupid thing to do and I completely regret it. I am glad that the young lad will be out of hospital in a few days.”
The Cronulla Sharks will play their first ever Grand Final this weekend, taking on the Melbourne Storm, a development that has seen both Sharks fans and Sharks alike, rejoicing.
But Cronulla officials have warned against ocean sharks taking matters into their own hands. “Let’s save any brutal attacks until Sunday on the field,” a club spokesperson told Broken News.
The rogue shark in question has issued a full apology to the family of the victim and has also apologised for bring the Sharks NRL club into disrepute.
“This was a big mistake in the heat of the moment, and I hope I haven’t taken the focus off Sunday’s game,” the shark said in a statement.
The NRL integrity unit is said to be investigating the attack but is unlikely to take any action against the shark or the club.
