Jarrod Croker’s face said it all when he hurt his knee during Saturday’s 38-12 win over the Cowboys.
Scans reveal the Raiders Captain will need surgery to repair damage after he dislocated his left kneecap.
In a major blow for the club, it means Croker will miss the rest of the 2018 season.
He’s set to have surgery early next week and should be ready to get back into pre-season training for 2019 at the end of the year.
Devastated fans have taken to Facebook to express their sympathy and support…

Our guys next take on the Sharks at Southern Cross Stadium on Friday July 20, with kick-off at 6pm.
