The Cronulla Sharks haven’t wasted anytime finding a replacement for Ben Barba.

The premiers have added Indigenous All Star Edrick Lee to their roster after he was released by the Raiders last week.

With fellow Emerging Maroon  Valentine Holmes expected to fill Barbas spot at the back,  24 year old Lee says he’s thrilled by the opportunity to join the reigning premiers as they prepare to defend their inaugural NRL title.
