Forever Green: Where are they now? - Jason Croker
This week we catch up with our most capped player and all-time leading try scorer, Jason Croker.
Having made the most First Grade appearances for the club, Croker was also named in the club's Greatest Team.
Croker will be at GIO Stadium once again this Friday as he takes part in the halftime touch football match alongside his daughter, Lily.
Canberra Raiders #124
What do you do for work now?
I run a recruitment company called inPlace. We supply labourers for construction.
We've also got the café at Crace, it's a Coffee Guru up there so if you're ever in the neighbourhood pop in for a coffee.
What's your favourite memory as a Raider?
Making my debut and then obviously also the 1994 Grand Final.
What did it mean to you, to where the Raiders jersey?
It meant everything for me. Coming from where I come from and coming from the bush, playing for the Raiders was a dream come true for me. I just loved it.
Who was your favourite teammate?
I've got a couple of good mates, so Brett Mullins and David Furner, I can't split them. Towards the back end there was Simon Woolford, Luke Davico and Jason Smith when he was here - he was a champion fella.
Do you keep in touch with any of your former teammates?
Those guys that I just touched on, yeah. It's always good to catch up with old teammates and when you catch up with them its like you never left them.
What was your funniest moment as a Raider?
There's a few stories but I can't remember too much of them. I'm not much of a story teller.
Do you have any advice for current Raiders players?
Just enjoy it. Love what you do and just enjoy playing for the jersey, which I did. Go there and rip in and rip in on the field.
