The rugby league career of the much-travelled Ian Donnelly has taken another turn — he has been released from the final year of his contract with the Gold Coast Titans and has been signed by the Cronulla Sharks.

The former Ballina and Lismore Marist Brothers player spent several seasons with the Melbourne Storm before joing the Titans.

He has had limited chances on the Coast, and with Cronulla struggling with injuries, the Titans announced yesterday that the 28-year-old front-rower had been granted an immediate release.
