Humble Naiqama still surprised by milestone
Wests Tigers centre Kevin Naiqama will take to the field for the 100th time this Saturday afternoon when he comes up against his old club, the Newcastle Knights.
It's a fact that the Fijian international is certainly well aware of, but still amazed at.
"For me, it's honestly such a great milestone," he admitted.
"I never thought I would ever play 100 games.
"I feel very grateful and blessed to have the opportunity to play weekly in the NRL, so to play 100 games is something that I'm honestly a bit shocked at and still pinching myself when I turn up to training.
"It's a great milestone for myself, but it doesn't change anything about how we prepare this week.
"There's a task ahead and that's the Newcastle Knights. We've done our homework on them and they're a really good side so we're going to have to again be on our game this week to get the two points.
"It's just about doing my job — nothing too special from me," Naiqama added with a laugh.
"It's something that has been working really well for the team and collectively working hard for each other. The results are starting to show and working hard is the only way these results will go in our favour."
