Overview:

Despite missing six matches due to injury throughout 2014, Cooper Cronk enjoyed another strong year for Melbourne.

The halfback was at his creative and influential best in attack, finishing the season with a Club high 25 try assists from 19 games, also scoring five tries along the way.

One of the competition’s best playmakers, Cronk finished inside the league’s top five for both try and linebreak assists, highlighting his quality with the ball in hand.

His ice cool temperament was on show from the start of the year, sealing victory in his first match of the season with two field goals against the Panthers in Round 2.

An arm injury sustained in Origin 1 forced Cronk to miss matches between Rounds 12 and 16 however the halfback did not miss a beat upon his return, providing Melbourne with a clinical edge to finish the season.

At Melbourne Storm’s season ending Player of the Year Awards, Cronk was named the Club’s Best Back for season 2014, receiving the award for the third year in a row.
