Another season, another long list of accolades for Cooper Cronk.

The champion Storm halfback was named the Dally M Player of the Year for the second time in four seasons, tying with Cowboys prop Jason Taumalolo.

Taking a look at the stats sheet it is easy to see why rugby league’s highest individual honour went his way.

Cronk recorded 23 try assists, 12 tries, 19 line break assists and ranked second in the competition for kick metres as he put his creative genius on full display.

Once again he proved he is arguably the best match winner in rugby league, stepping up to kick three field goals to get Storm over the line during the season, including one in Round 7 to defeat Wests Tigers in golden point.

He missed just one game, playing 26 in total – his most since 2012 while helping to steer Queensland to yet another series win, their 10th in 11 years.

Cronk etched his name further into NRL immortality when he played his 300th game in the Preliminary final win over the Raiders, becoming just the 25th player in the game’s history to reach that milestone.

The 33-year-old also cemented his legacy as a one-Club player when he re-signed with Storm during the season for a further two years.
