We’re still no closer to knowing what Storm halfback Cooper Cronk plans on doing next year, but he’s given his biggest indication yet that retirement is a real possibility.
According to AAP, Cronk today admitted that this season could be his last. Asked whether this might be his final year, Cronk said that “I suppose in hindsight, it possibly could be.”
However, Cronk was quick to clarify that no decision had yet been made, adding that he’s “not the type of player to just make decisions off the cuff.”
“In due course I’ll let you know, but that time’s not for a while, trust me.”
Cronk has played 312 first grade games for the Storm, 19 Origins for Queensland, and 32 Tests for Australia.
He’s #2 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
