Cronk aware of surgery prospect ahead of GF


//

Cooper Cronk was aware that he would likely require surgery on his shoulder leading into Sunday’s NRL decider against the Melbourne Storm.

As the legend of Cronk’s courage continues to grow it seems the star half is facing the prospect of a metal plate being inserted into his scapula should his shoulder fail to heal within a month.

Teammate James Tedesco celebrated the veteran’s performance in the Roosters 21-6 premiership winning victory over the Storm, and was in awe of his decision to take to the field despite knowing the consequences.

“He’s the GOAT, obviously with the way he got through that game,” Tedsco told Nine’s Danny Weidler.

“He knew if he did play there was some serious pain and surgery required, he knew that, and it didn’t stop him at all.  

“He got another scan on it today and he’s in a lot of pain but he said ‘It’s all worth it’.

“He knew we needed him.

Cronk’s fitness led the narrative ahead of Sunday’s NRL decider, but the club has come under fire this week for failing to reveal the extent of the star’s injury to the media.

Cronk breaks silence over injury

Following the game it was revealed that Cronk had fractured his scapula an injury Roosters doctor Ameer Ibrahim likened to ones seen in ‘motorbike accidents’.

“It’s one thing to break your bones in a game when the adrenaline carries you over the line. But to go through one-and-a-half games - because it (occurred) halfway through the Souths game - and then come through this busted, he would have turned up (for the decider) in 11 out of 10 pain and prayed the injection worked … In 20 years, one hundred per cent, I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“It was interesting, everyone I’d spoken to in footy hadn’t seen it. They’re motorbike accidents.”
