With a knee injury limiting him to three appearances in 2013, Crocker announced his retirement at the end of the 2013 season. Crocker said, "After undergoing surgery in April, my focus has been to get back on the field. Unfortunately, I have arrived at the point where my knee is unable to meet the demands of professional football. It has been an incredible 13 years playing in the NRL and my career has been blessed."
Crocker was contracted to Melbourne Storm for the 2009 NRL season but activated a clause in 2008 that allowed him to accept a lucrative contract with English club Hull F.C.
Crocker planned to join Super League side Hull F.C. for the 2009 season on a four-year contract. Hull F.C. confirmed they had signed Crocker on a three-year contract from the 2009 season with the club "delighted" with the signing, although a visa application to work in the United Kingdom was rejected, in part due to a 2005 conviction for affray.
The British High Commission rejected Crocker's appeal to be allowed to work in the UK in May 2009, but did not give an official reason. Crocker signed a contract with the South Sydney Rabbitohs for five years, making an immediate start with the club. Crocker's debut came in the round 10 NRL match against the West Tigers on 18 May 2009 played at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
His representative career continued throughout all of 2008. Crocker played in all 3 games for Queensland in State of Origin, with Queensland successfully winning the series over New South Wales. He was selected to represent his country again, playing for Australia in the Centenary Test commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first test match between Australia and New Zealand. Australia celebrated a resounding victory winning 28–12 against New Zealand.
Crocker was a member of the Melbourne team which was defeated by the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in the 2008 NRL Grand Final.
At the end of the season, Crocker was named in the Australia team for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup, and was due to play but had to withdraw through a rib injury sustained in the grand final.
In an interview with media regarding players for the 2008 World Cup team Australian national coach Ricky Stuart declared English-bound forward Crocker had played his last game for Australia due to his pending defection to English club Hull F.C. However, in August 2008, Crocker was named in the preliminary 46-man Kangaroos squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup despite earlier comments by Kangaroos' coach, Ricky Stuart, that he would not select players leaving Australia to play in England in 2009.
He was part of the victorious Melbourne Storm 2007 NRL Grand Final team against Manly-Warringah. His contribution to the win, was highlighted when he knocked out Manly fullback Brett Stewart with a ball and all tackle. Chasing a high bomb kicked by Greg Inglis, Crocker pursued the ball to make a tackle on Stewart alongside fellow Storm player Billy Slater. The play resulted in Brett Stewart leaving the field and being sidelined for the rest of the match. Several minutes later, Crocker went on and scored a decisive try.

Crocker made his State of Origin debut for the Maroons while playing with the Sydney Roosters in 2003. He became the 136th player to represent Queensland in State of Origin and he scored a try on debut in the second match of the 2003 State of Origin series. At the end of that season Crocker played in the 2003 NRL grand final which the Roosters lost to the Penrith Panthers. He was selected to go on the 2003 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain and France, becoming the 714th player to represent his country in the green and gold, contributing to Australia's victory over Great Britain in what would be the last time the two nations contested an Ashes series.
Crocker played for the Roosters from the interchange bench in their 2002 NRL Grand final victory over the New Zealand Warriors. Having won the 2002 NRL Premiership, the Roosters travelled to England to play the 2003 World Club Challenge against Super League champions, St Helens R.F.C.. Crocker played at hooker in the Sydney Roosters victorious win over St Helens.
