Cook makes World XIII

South Sydney Rabbitohs hooker Damien Cook has been selected in 2018's World XIII.

After a fantastic season, which saw Cook selected for both NSW and Australia as well as being named Dally M Hooker of the Year and awarded the George Piggins Medal, Cook's achievements have been recognised on Worldwide stage.

The World XIII is a team selected by 11 journalists, where each judge picks their top five favourite players from each position.

The first player picked receives five points, which then goes all the way to down to the fifth selection, who receives one point.

Cook is one of seven Australians to the make the team, with three players from England, two from Tonga and one from New Zealand joining them.
