Vodafone Warriors' 100 club: From Jones to Tevaga

He stepped onto the NRL stage for the first time on March 20, 2016 and tomorrow Jazz Tevaga runs onto the field for the 100th time for the Vodafone Warriors.

And, as he did against Melbourne on debut six years ago, the 26-year-old utility forward will again start at hooker in his milestone match against St George Illawarra at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium in Sydney.

He becomes the 27th player to appear in 100 matches for the Vodafone Warriors and, significantly, the 23rd to reach the feat after starting his NRL career with the club; only four players on the elite list made their debuts with other clubs (Jacob Lillyman, Michael Luck, Nathan Fien and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck).

As it stands now, Tevaga is one of only three players on the list whose entire first-grade careers have been with the Vodafone Warriors, the other two being the club's record holder for most appearances Simon Mannering (301) and Jerome Ropati (145). The rest all played for other NRL or English Super League clubs.

Tevaga's long-time teammate Bunty Afoa plays his 95th game tomorrow and is set to become the 28th member of the 100 club in the Mount Smart Stadium homecoming match against Wests Tigers on July 3.
