Mitchell Pearce caught up with the media yesterday morning ahead of our Round 21 clash with the Bulldogs on Friday night. 

This game marks the 200th NRL game for Mitchell Pearce, being the youngest player to crack the 200 game milestone.

Pearce debuted at the age of 17, and now that the legal age to play NRL football is 18, that record may never be broken.

"I'm pretty proud to be able to get to this many games, especially for one club," said Pearce. 

"I'm excited for the game, but more than that I just want to get a good win on Friday night," he added.

Never too bothered about making things about himself, he also made mention of his genetics!

"The biggest thing is I've got to thank my genetics," he said.

"I've been durable enough to get through those games, there are a lot of players better than me who haven't achieved it because of their injuries," he added.

Even though he doesn't want to make the day about himself, he's the Captain and he'll be celebrating a huge achievement this weekend.
