Rugby League legend Cooper Cronk will join the GIANTS as a leadership consultant.
One of the greatest to have ever played the game, Cronk played his 375th and final NRL game in the Sydney Roosters’ 2019 Premiership victory.
Cronk said he is excited for a new opportunity in a different code.
“I am looking forward to working with the GIANTS and the team,” he said.
“During my career I was able to learn many aspects to leadership and performance which I hope to convey to assist the club in achieving its goals.”
In his 16-year-career Cronk won four NRL Premierships with the Roosters and Melbourne Storm and played in nine Grand Finals.
He is a two-time Dally M Medal winner for the best and fairest player in the NRL and won a Clive Churchill Medal for the best player in a Grand Final.
GIANTS Head Coach Leon Cameron welcomed Cronk to the orange and charcoal.
“We’re really excited to have Cooper join the GIANTS,” Cameron said.
“He’s had an incredible career at the very top level and brings a wealth of experience to our club, including knowing what a winning culture looks like.
“Cooper is obviously one of the greatest to have ever played in the NRL, but his character and eagerness to be involved in a different sport were also attractive to us.
“We’re thrilled he’ll join our club to work with our players and staff.”
Cronk will start at the club in late November as the GIANTS’ players return to pre-season training.
