Be there to celebrate Jarrod Croker's 150th
Canberra captain Jarrod Croker will be chasing a win in his 150th first grade game this weekend against St George Illawarra at WIN Stadium.
NRL Head of Marketing Lewis Pullen urged Canberra fans to make the journey down the escarpment to Wollongong to give the Raiders skipper as much support as possible.
"One hundred and fifty first grade games is quite an achievement and it would be great if Raider’s supporters were there in droves to cheer Jarrod on," Mr Pullen said.
"The centre made his debut against the St George Illawarra Dragons in 2008, so it's fitting he will bring up his 150th against the same club.
"Croker is also closing in on another milestone – he's 22 points short of becoming only the third Raiders player to score 1,000 points for the club, behind David Furner and Clinton Schifcofske.
"With both teams looking to secure their position near the top of the Telstra Premiership ladder, there’s plenty of reasons to get along to Sunday’s clash," Mr Pullen said.
