Celebrate Croker’s Record
Unfortunately Jarrod Croker was playing at Jubilee Stadium when he broke the Raiders all-time leading point scoring record. Fortunately for Raiders fans at the game this Sunday it gives us an excuse to celebrate his achievement! There will be plenty of special things happening around the ground to celebrate Jarrod’s point scoring prowess.
Special commemorative Jarrod Croker headgears will be handed out in specific areas of the stadium. The best way to make sure you get one is to head up to the Raiders members lounge where the first 100 people into the lounge after gates open will receive one.
The west forecourt will have heaps happening, with Victor’s Viking Ship and a Nerf Arena sure to keep the kids entertained pre-match. A roving pipe will be around the forecourt for the one hour prior to kick-off. Mix 106.3 will be set-up in the East Forecourt pumping tunes from gates open until NRL kick-off.
