Second most NRL games and 99 tries – Cronk's career in Opta numbers

NRL great Cooper Cronk will retire at the end of the season after a glittering 16-year career.

A three-time premiership winner and twice a Dally M Medallist, the Sydney Roosters star announced on Monday that this campaign would be his last.

Having also starred for Melbourne Storm, Australia and Queensland, Cronk ranks among the sport's greats.

We take a look at the Opta stats after his announcement.

357 - Cronk has played the second most NRL games in history, behind only Cameron Smith (394).

99 - He has scored 99 NRL tries, including 12 in both 2011 and 2016.
