Nine's director of sport Tom Malone said the network wanted to see a second side to rival the Broncos to be introduced in time for the next broadcasting deal in 2023.

But Mr Morrison, who is the Sharks number one ticket holder, rubbished those reports and said the Shire side would survive any attempts to be culled from the roster.

'Channel 9 doesn't run the game, the NRL does,' Mr Morrison told The Daily Telegraph.

Mr Morrison was a part of the 18,985 strong crowd at Shark Park for Cronulla legend Paul Gallen's last home game of his career, with the Sharks suffering a heartbreaking 15-14 loss to the Canberra Raiders.

He said grass roots suburban fortresses like Shark Park, Leichhardt Oval, Lottoland and Kogarah Park were the core of rugby league culture.

'This is rubbish. Cronulla is here forever. Suburban grounds are the heart and soul of rugby league.'

Mr Morrison is not the only politician coming out in favour of their club, with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian throwing her support behind Manly.

'Scott Morrison lied to Australia': Deb O'Neill lashes out at PM over Religious Discrimination Bill Senator Deborah O’Neill has lashed out at Scott Morrison, accusing the Prime Minister of “lying to the Australian people” over the draft Religious Discrimination Bill. Ms O’Neill’s comments come after church leaders hit back at Attorney-General Christian Porter’s draft Religious Discrimination Bill, claiming there had not been enough consultation before the draft release. Despite the government promising to 'shield' Australians of faith from discrimination, many church leaders are still calling for religious freedoms that would allow them to discriminate in accordance with their beliefs.

'I think most Sydneysiders will be distraught if we lose one of our teams, and I will certainly make my views known publicly and I'll say it today, hands off the Sea Eagles,' Ms Berejiklian said.

There are nine Sydney teams in the NRL - making it an obvious location to choose a team to cull - but the NRL has a bad history of kicking teams out of the competition.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs were cut from the NRL in 1999, triggering mass outrage and 80,000 protesters marching onto the streets of Sydney.

ARLC chairman Peter Beattie attempted to allay fears that a Sydney side was on the chopping block, saying they would have a chance to have their say during a meeting with club chairs on September 12.

'No club will be forced to move,' Beattie said.
