The Touching Photo That Proves Townsend Deserves To Go Down In The History Books
He might have faced a bit of adversity to get to the Grand Final, but Chad Townsend has managed to propel himself into the record books as a part of the 2016 premiership side.
It's a big moment for Townsend, who can be seen in the image below as a child with club legend ET.
Townsend was axed mid-game in an earlier finals match, but managed to bounce back to become a premiership winning halfback.
As a local junior, the win was extra special for Townsend. He made his debut for the Sharks in 2011, before a brief stint with the Warriors from 2014 - 2015.
His return to the Sharks in 2016 was part of the big recuitment drive this season, with James Maloney another top notch signing.
