Cronk calls for a lift

Aap
Thursday, July 17, 2014

MELBOURNE - Melbourne halfback Cooper Cronk says the Storm can still threaten the top sides for the NRL premiership, but they'll need to shake things up in a hurry.

The courageous Cronk, who after breaking his arm in the State of Origin opener returned to star in Queensland's victory in the series finale, says a Storm side accustomed to success would not settle for mediocrity.

And it would take a lift from every player.

"This club doesn't settle for mediocrity," Cronk told reporters.

"Something needs to click. We can't continue on the way we are.

"I'm not pointing the finger at any individual or group of players.

"This football club from the coach down to the senior players to the rookies, need to apply themselves more than they have been."
