Wests Tigers fan favourite Beau Ryan is rumoured to have signed with the Cronulla Sharks, the Daily Telegraph reported this afternoon.

The shock move will see the popular rugby league player head south on a three year deal.

The Telegraph says Ryan informed his teammates late today, with fellow Tiger Chris Heighington expected to announce his intentions to join him in the Shire in the next few days.

If true, the move signals a big loss for Wests both on and off the field. Ryan's frequent television appearances have made him somewhat of a cult hero at Leichhardt Oval.

Since debuting for the Tigers in 2007 Ryan has been a valuable member of the team, scoring almost 50 tries and a total of 184 points.

After a consistent year the 27-year-old won selection in the Kangaroos Prime Minister's team.

    Seems appropriate for the man responsible for DJ Yallah to play in the suburb that had the race riot

    Do the sharks know something we don't? Beau Ryan is average at best and Heighington is a good 2 years past his best. Please don't tell me they are offloading Jeremy Smith to sign these guys?

    Bad move by the Sharks to sign this over-rated clown. Is he a Matty Johns love child...??? He certainly not the funnyman he thinks he is.
