A week after surpassing club great Mal Meninga on the Raiders’ list of most tries for the club, Captain Jarrod Croker is set to achieve another significant milestone this Saturday against the Cronulla Sharks at GIO Stadium.
Croker’s try in the win over the Knights was the 75th of his career and now sees him ranked as fourth on the list of most tries for the club behind Jason Croker (120), Brett Mullins (105) and Laurie Daley (87).

Furthermore, Croker’s haul of 16 points from the win over the Knights took him to 1,046 career points which is just six points below Clinton Schifcofske’s record of 1,052 points for the club.
Given that Croker has averaged just under 10 points per game this season, it is highly likely that he will overtake Schifcofske this Saturday, which would mean he would sit second behind David Furner (1,218) on the all-time point scoring list.
Testament to Croker’s character and his club-first mentality, he had no idea that he had overtaken Meninga until after the game.
“Yeah mate I had no idea until you told me after the game,” Croker. “Mal is a legend of the club so it’s something that I’m obviously proud of and very humbled by but it’s not what I play the game for.
“I’m more concerned about getting the two points from a win and getting a win over the Sharks this weekend in front of our home fans would mean a great deal more to me than any individual accolade.”
