Season review – Darren Crocker

“He slotted straight back in after what was the first long-term injury he’s had in his career.

“He really looked after himself, he got his hamstring right and was able to play in the midfield and on the wing.

“He showed us how important he was in the second half of the year with his polish and his ability to finish for us.

“He was really keen to bounce back after the Richmond game, because he prides himself in performing in big games, which is what he did in the next two matches.”
