Would be good to see Croker get this, even if they do only hand the award to Croker during the ad break in the Dally M before waving him away like last time.
Would have won Boogs - 2016

Yeah annoying that the Rabbits gave the Roosters so many points to start it all off... At least the second half was terrible... Six points to level may actually be good enough as then I think it goes on tries (Baloney 9, Croker 10).
Get Stuart to realise he is holding the club back and step down to player manager!

Canberra Raiders skipper Jarrod Croker eyes off point scoring summit

Former Canterbury sharpshooter Daryl Halligan says there's a struck match between Jarrod Croker and James Maloney as the NRL's best goalkicker, but he has no doubt the current crop easily has his era covered.

Canberra Raiders skipper Croker needs seven points against Parramatta on Sunday to overtake Roosters playmaker Maloney and claim his second top point scorer gong in four years.

Croker's kicking percentage of 84.91 is the best in the league this year, and his career percentage of 81.47 is bettered only by all-time top point scorer Hazem El Masri (81.97) and Cronulla fullback Michael Gordon (82.26).

Croker starts as the incumbent with excellent accuracy and history.

Allows Sezer to concentrate solely on the playmaker role and add support if needed, im sure they will rub off each other in games and training.

Pretty sure if they are tied it just remains a tie.

I certainly hope not. That's disgraceful, as Nickman would say 'sort it out'.

6 gets him level, 7 wins it. Yes, i understand its actually 7, BUT, its unlikey he scores a field goal, so 8 points are required. Also, inst there a win by 2 rule?!? Maybe that's just Tennis :P

Only on the GH is Jarrod Croker a contender for the Golden Boot.

Golden Boot is given to the best player in international rugby league for the year. Has nothing to do with the NRL.

Croker should wear golden boots when accepting whatever his award is called in protest. The award that's handed to him at the dally m ceremony, backstage in a janitor's closet during an ad-break.
Would have won Boogs - 2016

Haha and he should refer to it as the "golden boot award" as he's giving his acceptance speech.
