The season began with a milestone for front rower Lindsay Collins, who played his 50th NRL and Roosters match in Round 1 against the Newcastle Knights.

Following this was Luke Keary's 100th game in the Red, White and Blue in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the 2002 Premiership as the Roosters defeated the New Zealand Warriors at the SCG.

Captain James Tedesco also came away with a win in his 100th game for the Club in Magic Round, while Paul Momirovski took the field for the 50th time in the NRL against his former side the Melbourne Storm in Round 14. 

Connor Watson played his 50th Roosters game against the Penrith Panthers in Round 16, while Drew Hutchison took the field for the 50th time in first-grade in the Round 18 thumping against the Dragons, and is set to make his 50th appearance in Red, White and Blue in Round 22 against the Cowboys.

Should he continue his run of games, Tedesco could reach the 200 game milestone at home against the Cowboys on the hallowed Sydney Cricket Ground, while Nat Butcher can reach a century of games - all in the Tricolours - in Melbourne against the Storm two weeks later.

Victor Radley (100 games for Roosters) and Sam Verrills (50 games for Roosters) will need to play every single game from Round 16 onwards including three finals matches to achieve their respective milestones in 2022.

New addition Renouf Atoni has the chance to make his 50th NRL appearance in season 2022, having already played 43 matches for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
