SPORT NRL Leaks: Cooper Cronk’s final destination revealed July 23, 2017 GOSSIP COFFEE COOPER Cronk’s manager has confirmed the champion halfback will make a decision on his future at the completion of this year’s Origin series. Cronk shocked the NRL last month when he announced 2017 would be his final season at Melbourne after 14 seasons of loyal service. Cronk’s future decided Cooper Cronk will finish his career at the Melbourne Storm. He will sign a new two-year deal in the coming weeks with rival clubs, including St George-Illawarra, unable to match the figure upwards of $700,000 that Cronk is demanding. Cronk’s re-signing will also increase the likelihood of Benji Marshall staying at the Dragons.
