On the eve of the Vodafone Warriors' round 10 away match against the Panthers, captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck was presented with his match jersey for his 100th NRL appearance by Roosters legend and former team-mate Anthony Minichiello.
Tuivasa-Sheck was both honoured and humbled to receive his jersey from the former Roosters fullback who also played 11 matches for New South Wales and 19 tests for Australia.
Both a friend and mentor to Tuivasa-Sheck, Minichiello played a key role in the development of the young fullback who made his NRL debut on the wing for the Roosters late in the 2012 season. The pair went on to win the NRL premiership the following season with a 26-18 grand final victory over the Manly Seas Eagles.
The one club man, affectionately known as Mini, holds the record for most NRL appearances (302) for the Sydney Roosters.
After Tuivasa-Sheck's standout performance against the Roosters two weeks ago, Minichiello said: "He just wants to be the best. He was always asking questions and is always willing to learn and those guys are rare in the game and that's why you'll see his career will be decorated for sure.
"He's got the drive to succeed and he'll succeed here at the Warriors and certainly as captain as well."
Tuivasa-Sheck played 84 times for the Roosters before joining the Vodafone Warriors last season.
