SYDNEY, Oct 6 AAP - Minor premiers Cronulla overcame a tardy start and some scorching weather to win Sunday's NSW Cup grand final with an emphatic 36-8 win over Windsor Wolves at ANZ Stadium.

Still waiting for their maiden first-grade title, the Sharks scored six tries to two as the mercury soared well over the 30-degree mark.

Cronulla, who are a feeder side to Melbourne as well as the Sharks, scored 18 unanswered points after the break.

The Wolves scored first through giant Fijian winger Eto Nabuli and made all the early running.

Gradually, Cronulla took control with halfback Chad Townsend controlling play well.

Five-eighth Penanai Manumalealii bamboozled two defenders with a big left foot step to get the Sharks on the board.

Penrith-bound lock Tyrone Peachey was next to cross for Cronulla, but Nabuli palmed off a defender to notch his second try and get Windsor within four points.

That was as close as the Wolves were able to get.

Michael Lichaa burrowed over for a timely try just before halftime, as the Sharks headed for the sheds with an 18-8 buffer.

In the second half, centre Kirisome Auva'a crossed twice and forward Junior Moors once, as Cronulla took even greater control.
