Jarrod Croker has spoken of his delight of the decision to appoint Josh Hodgson alongside him as Captain in 2019.

Speaking at Raiders HQ earlier this morning, the Raiders Centre was full of praise for the Hooker.

"We have been speaking quite a lot about growing our leadership group here at the Club," Croker said.

"We spoke about how we can grow in the leadership area and we thought that having someone like 'Hodgo' alongside me would really help.

"He's arguably one of the best players in the NRL and he's more then likely to captain England one day so it was an easy decision to have him there with me."
