Crokers to make history at Nines

Jason Croker's return at this weekend's Auckland Nines will make history when he takes to the field with nephew Lachlan Croker. It will mark the first time an uncle and nephew have played together for the Raiders at the same time.

Jason is a 318 game legend for the Raiders, who was coaxed out of retirement to play at the Nines. Lachlan played in last year's edition of the Nines, and will look to make a larger impact in this year's tournament. 

Check out their interview with Raiders TV as they discuss the Auckland Nines and whether Lachlan would hand off to his uncle for a try or score it himself. 

The entire Auckland Nines event will be broadcast on Fox Sports in Australia. Stay tuned to the Canberra Raiders Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for live updates, photos and videos from the tournament.
