OFFICIAL: Cooper Cronk To The Roosters Is A Done Deal

Cooper Cronk will be joining the Sydney Roosters next season, with the NRL club confirming the signing this afternoon.

“The Sydney Roosters are a proud club with an esteemed history, and this is an exciting new opportunity for me,” Cronk said in a statement.

“It marks the start of a new chapter for me both professionally and personally and I look forward to joining my new teammates and coaches, and immersing myself in the club’s culture in lead-up to the 2018 season.”

The deal is worth around $2 million, and is arguably one of the biggest signings the Roosters have made since Sonny Bill Williams.

“We are delighted to have secured the services of Cooper for the next two seasons,” said Roosters Chief Executive Joe Kelly.

“Cooper has played the game at the highest level for a number of years and we are keenly aware of what he brings to the Club. Together with the established leaders within our squad, we see him as a wonderful addition to our roster,” he added.

Cronk will be with the club for two seasons.

He's made the move from Melbourne to be closer to his fiance Tara Rushton.
