Croker set to become the youngest player to post 2000 points

Canberra Raiders co-captain Jarrod Croker is set to become the youngest player in the NRL to score 2000 points. He presently sits on 1996 points, and could easily score four points in Round 1 of the 2020 season. If he does that, he'll then be 29 years and 184 days old. Jason Taylor presently holds the record as the youngest player to reach 2000 points, at 30 years and 140 days. Croker will be the seventh player to score 2000 points. Cameron Smith currently sits on 2602 points.

Meanwhile, Ricky Stuart will rack up his 400th match as a coach in Round 5 this year and is five games away from his 200th victory as an NRL coach.

Cool stats.

FWIW, unless injury takes him, I expect Croker to score at least 4pts in Rd 1 vs Titoons

I was wishing very much that he got to this milestone as he led us to glory and lifted the premiership trophy...but it wasn't to be.

At least it will be at home. I think, when he does it, we should all stand and give him a riotous standing ovation.

Matt can you change your name to Dugan's Beard if we're pointless after round 4?

I feel like he should have to do it if Croker doesn't score 4 points in Round 1.

Let's make this **** interesting.

How about of Matt's bold prediction comes true and Croker manages 4 points vs Titans, you must fully and publicly support all his Matchups for the next 6 rounds. If Matt is wrong then he cannot shave for the next 6 rounds.

I feel like the line should be a bit more in my favour… those are terrible odds.

Is the idea of supporting Matt's Matchups too big a price?

It's not so much the price is too big, I'd just prefer a bet that's closer to 50/50 rather than like 95/5.

So you're suggesting Matt's prediction is not that big a reach.

Great, just great. Now the Mickey is on him. Watch as he does his knee going for a try, which winds up to be disallowed, and he has to retire

Given jarrod was coached by daryl halligan think it will be a big moment for crokes when he goes past halligan too.. Say by round 4 or so
