Sea Eagles hooker Lachlan Croker has re-signed for a further season, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2024.
The 25-year-old has become one of the club’s most consistent performers in recent years, taking out Player of the Year honours in 2022.
Croker has moulded into the hooker role on a consistent basis during the long absence of Manase Fainu, and has now played 82 games for Manly since moving to the club in 2018.
Already contracted for next season, Croker’s new deal will see him remain on the Northern Beaches for an extra season under incoming coach Anthony Seibold.

“Lachlan is a very popular clubman who just loves pulling on the Manly jersey,’’ Sea Eagles CEO Tony Mestrov said.
“He has established himself as our starting hooker. Lachlan gives his all each and every week.
“We are very happy to extend Lachlan out for a further season.”
