Running water is Pie in the Sky for Croker

Running water is Pie in the Sky for Croker

Canberra Raiders legend Jason Croker won’t be running water, he’ll be walking it. That’s all his creaking knees will allow him to do for the Pie in the Sky charity game, at the Green Machine’s spiritual home of Seiffert Oval on Friday night.

An All Stars team including Ken Nagas, Alan Tongue, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs and David Barnhill – and coached by Immortal Mal Meninga –  will play Terry Campese’s Queanbeyan Blues to raise money for charities Treehouse and Respite Care for Queanbeyan.

  While his knees won’t let him play after 318 NRL games of damage. Croker will form part of an all-star water carrying crew along with Brett Mullins and Josh Miller.
But the players on the field might need to be patient about getting a drink. “The old knees are not up to it. I’ll be walking the water out, mate, I won’t be running the water,” Croker said.

“It should be a good arvo. I’m looking forward to catching up with some old teammates and it’s for a great cause as well.”

Croker’s 1994 premiership teammate Nagas will be playing,with the former NSW winger happy to play on one condition! There’s a doctor on the sideline.
The 45-year-old has done a “little bit” of training, but was mainly looking forward to catching up and talking about the old days. “Just reliving my youth like the rest of them I think,” Nagas joked.

“I said I don’t mind doing it as long as the doc’s there, as long as the doc and the physio is there, that’s all that matters.

“To get back and see a few of the guys that I haven’t seen for a while and catch up and talk about the good old days, and see where we’re at in regards to whether we’ve still got it.
“Hopefully we don’t snap anything. It’s been a long time since I’ve played a bit of physical contact.” PIE IN THE SKY
