England star Josh Hodgson has been appointed Canberra’s co-captain for 2019, alongside Jarrod Croker.
Croker was already captain of the Raiders, and will be joined by England hooker Hodgson next season.
Hodgson has been at the Raiders since his move from Hull Kingston Rovers in 2015, playing over 70 games in the NRL so far.
Croker commented: “Ricky [Stuart] and I have been discussing for a while a way we can strengthen the leadership in the team and we’ve decided to have Josh Hodgson join me as captain of the club.
“Having two captains gives us the chance to take the team to the next level and we know Josh is an experienced and passionate club man who will give his all to the role.
“For me, it’s the opportunity to grow as a leader and I could not have anyone better suited to stand beside me than Hodgo.
“I can’t wait to get the season started and I know the squad has been working hard during the first part of the pre-season.”
Hodgson said: “Honoured to be announced captain of Canberra Raiders – a club with so much history – alongside my good mate Jarrod Croker.
“We will be doing everything we can to make some history of our own.”
