Cronk is now equal 10th. If Cronk avoids injury, he should finish second on that list - around the 365 mark. If he decides to play on after next year, it could be more - however I think that is unlikely.

Mahe Fonua had an absolute belter for the Tigpies last night.

When I saw he was up against Hampton, I felt for Hampton - big size difference up top.

Great to see Mahe going strong. By all accounts he played very well in England and has come back looking confident and powerful.

Forgetting the Real SLim Shady look Widdop had going on last week, did you see his teeth get bent back inside his head? Ouch... ***Shudders***

Unbelieveable in this day and age that any NRL player would attempt to play without one...
