Every year there's always players who shine for their club but don't get the recognition from the wider public or the representative selectors.

And when NRL.com put it to the fans, no player during the past three decades has had a more under-rated career than Canberra captain Jarrod Croker.

A consistent performer who has often seen the spotlight fall on his teammates, he has never been given due recognition by representative selectors in the State of Origin or international arena.

After putting out a 10-man shortlist, the race for the title came down to Croker and Roosters stalwart Mitch Aubusson, who is coincidentally playing his 300th NRL game this week.

Croker was a clear winner after more than 80,000 votes via this article and polls on the [size=calc(1.125rem + ((2 * (100vw - 320px)) / 1280))]official NRL [/size][size=calc(1.125rem + ((2 * (100vw - 320px)) / 1280))]Instagram[/size][size=calc(1.125rem + ((2 * (100vw - 320px)) / 1280))] and [/size][size=calc(1.125rem + ((2 * (100vw - 320px)) / 1280))]Facebook[/size][size=calc(1.125rem + ((2 * (100vw - 320px)) / 1280))] accounts.[/size]

NRL.com recently launched the search for the Simply The Best players from 1990 to now to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the iconic Tina Turner promotional campaign, which was again featured in this year's advertisement for the Telstra Premiership, and is calling on the fans to have their say on a range of topics on the modern era.

Such was the strength of the options, there was no room in the initial 10-man shortlist for the likes of Mitch Healey, John Skandalis, Josh Jackson, Daniel Gartner, Ryan Hinchcliffe, Isaah Yeo, John Morris, John Sutton and Nathan Merritt.
