Storm halfback to finish his career in Melbourne

Several clubs were after him and tried to pry him away from the Melbourne Storm but in the end, it was to no avail, with the veteran half re-signing at the club.

The new deal is expected to see the 32-year old remain at the Storm for life, as he signs on to remain with the Storm until the end of 2018.

With 293 games to his name so far, Cronk will become just the 2nd Storm player to reach 300 games after Cameron Smith.

One of the greatest halves of the modern era, Cronk has played in five grand finals, winning the 2012 NRL premiership and the Clive Churchill Medal.

The club themselves are pleased to retain the veteran, knowing how important he is to the side.

“Cooper is one of the very elite players of our game and to have himself, Cameron Smith and Billy Slater finish their careers as one-club players with Melbourne Storm is a testament to the contributions these players have made to building this Club.

“Cooper is a Melbourne Storm person through and through, he cares deeply about what the Club stands for and makes sure the playing group lives our values on a daily basis.

“We are delighted our members will be able to see a player of Cooper’s calibre play out the remainder of his career at AAMI Park.”
