Season Review: Brodie Croft

When you think of Brodie Croft in 2017 it is hard not to jump out of your skin with excitement.

His golden point field goal to sink the Cowboys in Round 15 will be one of the lasting moments of the season.

The following week Croft backed up his effort by getting on the try sheet against the Roosters and looked comfortable at halfback in Round 18 when tested by the Eels.

If Storm fans had any doubt about Croft’s ability after those three games, his electrifying performance against the Knights would lay those to rest.

In his first ever game alongside Cameron Smith and Billy Slater the 19-year-old put on a show by scoring three tries, making two line breaks and laying off a clever assist.

After the game the purple faithful would have been smiling from ear to ear knowing that with Cooper Cronk departing the Club, there is a young man ready, willing and capable of assuming the Storm No.7.

While Croft gained most of his attention during his four games in the NRL, his rapid development at feeder level did not go unnoticed.

The youngster played most of the season at halfback for Easts Tigers where he helped steer the team to a Preliminary Final on his way to being named Storm’s Feeder Player of the Year.
