Special occasion for Zane Musgrove ahead of 50-game milestone

It may have taken him over two thousand days, but Wests Tigers prop Zane Musgrove is finally set to make his 50th NRL appearance.

Musgrove makes it to his 50th NRL Game

After making his debut for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2016, Musgrove will play against his old club in his milestone match on Saturday night at Accor Stadium.

The front-rower played 27 matches in the cardinal and myrtle before switching his colours and making his first appearance for Wests Tigers in 2020.

He’s since become a staple of Michael Maguire’s forward pack, starting at prop in each of the club’s last eight matches.

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, Musgrove admitted that his journey has been filled with ups and downs but he’s ready to celebrate on Saturday night.

“I’m looking forward to running out there with the boys for my 50th and hopefully we can make it a special one by getting the win”

The clash against South Sydney carries extra significance for Musgrove as it will form part of the NRL’s Indigenous Round.

Musgrove stated that it is a privilege to play in the round, especially when lining up alongside proud Indigenous men like Daine Laurie, James Roberts and Brent Naden.

It really uplifts the Indigenous community and it’s going to be a massive occasion, so I’m really looking forward to it”.

Zane Musgrove

While he has previously represented his own Samoan and Maori culture, Musgrove is looking forward to the opportunity to celebrate the Indigenous heritage of his partner, which has now been passed onto Zane’s young son.

With this in mind, Musgrove is particularly keen to pull on the Wests Tigers new indigenous jersey, which was designed by Newcastle artist Tyler Smith.

Smith’s design honours the people who have played a role in the foundation of the club, along with those who will continue to serve as custodians of the Wests Tigers into the future.
