Myles set for 200th NRL appearance
Titans skipper Nate Myles will play his 200th NRL appearance against the Warriors on Saturday if he gets through Origin II for Queensland unscathed.
Myles, who grew up on the southern edge of Cairns at Gordonvale, made his NRL debut for the Bulldogs in round one of 2005 as a 19-year-old second-rower and played 39 games for the Belmore outfit, then 90 for Sydney Roosters from 2007-11.
He will run out for his 71st appearance for the Titans against the Warriors.
“Hopefully Nate gets through the Origin encounter and takes the field which I expect he will, he's pretty durable,” said coach Neil Henry.
“It’s a great milestone, especially for someone in the position he plays.
“He plays big minutes with a high work rate for a big man so it’s a credit to him and it will be great for him to hit the milestone before a home crowd.”
Myles follows Greg Bird who hit the 200-appearance mark earlier this season and William Zillman who reached 150.
