Sydney Roosters five-eighth Luke Keary will take to the NRL arena for the 100th time this Saturday afternoon when his side goes head-to-head with the Gold Coast Titans at Central Coast Stadium.
Luke Keary | 100 Games Highlights
Though Luke Keary has the luxury of an action-packed highlights reel so far, the 26 year old had a rocky start to his NRL career.
He debuted for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2013 and was excellent coming from the bench, even being rewarded for his big night out with a four-pointer (assisted by Roosters Assistant Coach Matt King).
Keary was called up to the NRL Auckland Nines to kick off his 2014 campaign, only to have his year cut in half after sustaining an injury in the pre-season tournament.
He wasn't eased back into it until he returned midway through the season, slotting straight into the starting five-eighth position and playing an integral role in his side's run to the 2014 NRL Telstra Premiership.
Now settled in with the Roosters on a long-term contract, Keary has found a place to call home with the Tricolours.
"I think I've definitely found a home here," Keary said ahead of his 100th NRL game.
"Everyone has welcomed me in with open arms and I'm stoked to be here, not to mention playing my 100th game here."
Keary had an outstanding season for the Roosters in 2017 and has continued his good form into this year.
He made his Tricolours debut against the Titans, the team he faced in his NRL debut and the team he will play his milestone 100th game against.
When asked about that fact, Keary had a bit of a chuckle, but remains focused on the task at hand.
"That's pretty cool and it's pretty amazing to think I'll be playing 100 games this weekend, but obviously the number one focus is to get the win.
"When it's over I reckon I'll have some time to reflect and really enjoy it, but right now it's about putting in a good performance and getting a win."
Keary currently leads the NRL in try assists (alongside Gareth Widdop of the Dragons) and is top five in support plays.
The Sydney Roosters would like to congratulate Luke Keary on his 100th NRL game this weekend.
