ABOUT ME:

Who am I: Mat Croker
Who is most important to me: My mum and dad. They’ve scarified a lot and I see how hard they work, so I’d say they’re the most important people to me
Greatest off-field achievement:  Probably finishing high school, I never thought I was going to finish, so that would be a big one. To a lot of people, it’s the sort of run of the mill thing but, I’d say finishing high school.
Something you wouldn’t know about me: I come from a Spanish background and I grew up on a dairy farm
I’d be lost without:  My family, my parents, but most of all my siblings. I’m the middle child of five children.
What I love most about living in Newcastle: The company, I’ve got a lot of mates here.
I grew up in: In Nabiac, it’s a little town 30 minutes south of Taree
People would describe me as:  Probably laid back
As a kid my hero was: My old man. He became my hero when I got into my teens.
They were my hero because:  As a male figure, he was a hard-working fella
The last book I read was: Paper Towns
My favourite thing to do in Newcastle is:  Hang with my younger brother or get a feed with the boys, like I said the company’s good
My greatest on field moment: Winning the U20’s Origin last year was a big one. Another one was winning a Grand Final back home, it was my last game there and I won it with a lot of close mates.
