David Croft re-signs with the QR Queensland Reds

Queensland Rugby today announced that flanker David Croft had re-signed with the QR Queensland Reds and the Australian Rugby Union for another two years.

Croft’s current arrangement with the QRU and ARU expires at the end of 2007.

Queensland Rugby CEO Ken Freer said Croft was an inspiration to his fellow Reds and one of the most durable players in the Super 14, having played 79 consecutive Super Rugby games to this point and over 100 games for Queensland.

‘Crofty is also one of the ‘keepers of the flame’ when it comes to tradition and culture within the Reds side. He’s the ideal player to help educate a new generation of players in what it means to play for the Reds,’ Freer said.

QR Queensland Reds coach Eddie Jones said Croft was ‘Mr Reliable’ in the tight situations, with a work ethic that was an example to others.

‘Crofty will never come off the field with anything left in the tank. He loves being part of this team and it shows in the effort he puts in,’ said Jones.

28-year old Croft, Brisbane born and raised and a proud second generation player with the Brothers club, made his state debut in 2000 and his Super Rugby debut a year later. He has earned five test caps since his Test debut in 2002 and has captained Australia A.

Croft is currently in South Africa with the Reds, who are due to play the Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday.
