Sydney Roosters vice-captain Jake Friend will today join an elusive club when he takes to the Allianz Stadium turf for his 100th NRL appearance.

After debuting in 2008 as an 18 year old, Friend has been one of the most consistent performers for the Tricolours in his time at the Bondi club.

Originally from Nambour in Queensland, Friend played his junior rugby league with the Noosa Pirates and appeared for the PMs XIII in 2011.

Ahead of his milestone clash, which falls on one of the biggest games in the Roosters and NRL calendar ANZAC Day, the hooker caught up with to chat about bringing up his century.

Im pretty excited and proud to play a hundred games and Im really looking forward to it, especially on ANZAC Day.

Asked if he had a highlight from his 100 matches, there was a clear favourite among all of the clashes.

The 2010 Grand Final was probably the biggest moment from all of the games Ive played and easily the most exciting.

With the match falling on ANZAC Day, Friend is guaranteed a louder reception than most on their hundredth match, however realistic as ever the young hooker isnt getting too excited just yet.

Its pretty cool actually that it ended up being on ANZAC Day, with the big crowd and all that comes with this massive day. It definitely makes it that little bit more special.

Its just another game really and although Im extremely excited to play this one and very proud but weve got plenty more to come this season and its just one of those.
