Member exclusive: Significant milestones in Manly clash

Two popular Wests Tigers players bring up significant milestones against Manly this Monday night at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.


Club captain Robbie Farah will play his 200th NRL match, becoming just the second Wests Tigers to do so behind Chris Heighington.


Liam Fulton will make his 150th appearance on the night; joining Farah, Heighington, Benji Marshall, John Skandalis, Bryce Gibbs, Todd Payten and Ben Galea in the exclusive Wests Tigers club.


Both members of the 2005 Grand Final winning side, the pair also made their debuts in close succession during the 2003 season.


Farah played his first NRL match against Manly in 2003 and will fittingly play his 200th match against the same club on Monday night.


This Club has been a part of my life for the past 20 years, Farah said.


It means a hell of a lot to me. To know I will have the opportunity to finish my career here is exciting.


I pinch myself every time I lead the boys out onto the field.


Im living the dream and not many people get to do that.


On the other hand, Fulton made his debut in the final game of the 2003 season against New Zealand and played the 2009 season in the Super League with Huddersfield.


Im very proud to be able to play for such a great Club. I believe we have the best supporters in the NRL. They are so passionate and it is an honour to play for them, Fulton said.


To know I am going to be at Wests Tigers for the rest of my playing career is really special.


I want to be able to help the young kids out with the start of their careers like John Skandalis, Mark ONeill and Ben Galea did for me when I first started.
