    Cooper Cronk farewells rugby league with another NRL premiership

    Cooper Cronk has farewelled rugby league with another NRL premiership but it came amid controversy, with the Sydney Roosters halfback sin-binned for a professional foul during the final

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    He tackled Canberra's Josh Papalii without the ball.

    The Roosters beat the Raiders 14-8 to become the first team in 26 years to defend their title.

    Cronk sounded like he need a lemon and honey drink by the end, as his team sent him into retirement with a third successive premiership.



    A 72nd minute James Tedesco try helped seal the win.

    Canberra's Jack Wighton has become the first player in six years to claim the Clive Churchill medal from a losing side.
