NRL Round 17 - Canberra Raiders vs North Queensland Cowboys at GIO Stadium

Jarrod Croker believes that he will be good to go next week as the Raiders face the Dragons at GIO Stadium.

Speaking at ActewAGL in the city centre, the Raiders captain said that his side's focus is on the next game against the Dragons on Juy 14.

"We're just focused on winning our next game and confidence will come from that," Croker said.

Croker was full of praise for teammate Josh Hodgson who was a late withdrawl from the Cowboys game due to injury.

"Hodgo is a leader on and off the field and he directs the boys around well on the park, it will be a big boost if we can get him back for the Dragons game."
