Cronk’s $ 3.5m home in a premier po­si­tion

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - JONATHAN CHAN­CEL­LOR

WITH another NRL grand fi­nal vic­tory un­der his belt, at least Cooper Cronk has a project to keep him busy dur­ing the off sea­son.

The for­mer NRL Mel­bourne Storm star and his fi­ancee Tara Rush­ton bought a new $3.5 mil­lion Syd­ney home last night.

The cou­ple snapped up a four-bed­room 1915 Fed­er­a­tion prop­erty in Mos­man, a sub­urb bet­ter known for its pa­tron­age of rugby union.

The re­cently ren­o­vated home show­cases high-qual­ity fin­ishes, spa­cious in­te­ri­ors and comes with a rear en­ter­tain­ing haven.

Perth-born Fox Sports pre­sen­ter Tara re­cently put her Kir­ri­billi apart­ment up for rent, spark­ing spec­u­la­tion the cou­ple had found some­where to call home to­gether.

Cronk, who left the Storm at the end of the sea­son, pro­posed to Rush­ton over the Christ­mas-New Year break last year. It was Cronk who de­cided his fu­ture lay in Syd­ney, hav­ing spent his ca­reer with the Storm, rack­ing up four NRL pre­mier­ships.

De­spite liv­ing 900km apart, the cou­ple have made the long-dis­tance re­la­tion­ship work. Cronk cred­ited his hap­pi­ness off field for his stel­lar year on the field.

“There’s no doubt she’s brought a lot of joy and pos­i­tiv­ity off the field and that trans­lates on the field,” Cronk said.
