Fresh off his party’s defeat in the federal election, former Prime Minister Scott Morrison had to see his beloved NRL side Cronulla lose on Saturday – and he had some words to say to a former Shark.

The Sharks lost 32-30 in their extra time and gold point qualifier against the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday.

That prompted Morrison to take to social media to write a message to former Sharks hero Chad Townsend, who went on to become the No. 7 villain for the Cowboys on Saturday.

The former Prime Minister and member of Cook was named by the club as the Sharks #1 Ticket Holder in 2016.

Townsend played 146 NRL games in two stints with the Sharks and was their halfback in their historic 2016 premiership year.

However, the 31-year-old playmaker fell out of favor with the club last year after being back with the New Zealand Warriors for a brief stint before signing a lucrative three-year deal with the Cowboys.

Townsend played all 93 minutes of Saturday’s epic Cowboys vs Cronulla qualifier and led his side well with his trap game while also trying to try.

The playmaker is prolific on social media and posted a message to his fans from both clubs after the game.

“A lot of emotions last night at Shark Park. A place I have had so many fond memories of,” he said.

“Thank you to the fans on both sides who made the atmosphere electric.

‘Such a physical and tough game and only fitting it went to the wire with a coupling field goal from [fellow former Shark] Valentine Holmes. Cowboysland, let’s ride.’

His post attracted a lot of interest, but the most notable was that of the former Prime Minister himself who congratulated Townsend on his achievements.

“Chad Townsend, you have made an extraordinary contribution to our club. Unfortunately you made a strong case for your new club last night,” he wrote.

The Cowboys star was quick to respond: ‘Scott Morrison [ScoMo] Appreciate the kind words ScoMo! I hope you and the family are doing well!’

‘Chad Townsend great days! I’m glad to see you and your family in Townsville doing well,” Morrison replied.

The Sharks-loving politician also posted to his own Facebook account, urging Cronulla for the rest of the NRL final.

“Proud of my Cronulla Sharks and all the amazing crowd that came to support Shark Park. The silent tribute to the Queen was very respectful and moving,” he said.

“It was a truly epic finale. Congratulations Cowboys, maybe we’ll see each other again in a few weeks. UP UP.’
