Croker named Raiders captain

Jarrod Croker has capped off an outstanding year at NRL level, by being named the Canberra Raiders Captain for the 2015 season.

A Goulburn Junior, Croker made his debut for the Raiders in 2009 and has played 140 matches for the club, scoring 892 points in his six seasons in the NRL squad.  

The 2015 season was hailed as Croker's best for the club, culminating when he won the Meninga Medal for the Raiders players' player for the NRL squad.

Croker follows a prestigious line of Raiders skippers, including the likes of Mal Meninga, Laurie Daley, Ricky Stuart and inaugural Captain David Grant.

Croker will take over the Captaincy from Terry Campese, who was recently released by the Raiders to take up a deal with Hull KR in the English Super League.
