Milestone watch: Warriors stats to get you excited for 2019

As the 2019 NRL season looms, a number of significant milestones are on the horizon for the Warriors.

Most notable is the possible 300th NRL appearance for forward Adam Blair, who currently sits on 289 games spread across stints with the Melbourne Storm, Brisbane Broncos, Wests Tigers and, of course, the Warriors.

Should the fates be kind, Blair's 300th match will come against none other than his former side, the Broncos, who travel to Mt Smart Stadium on May 25.

Blair would join the likes of Simon Mannering and Ruben Wiki as Kiwis to become NRL triple-centurions.

Elsewhere, the opening match of the Warriors' 2019 NRL season against the Bulldogs will see Stephen Kearney reach a half century of matches in charge of the club, before reaching his 100th game as a first-grade boss against the Dragons on May 11.

The June 14 clash against the Titans on the Gold Coast will be another for fans to mark in their calendar, seeing the Warriors play their 600th match in the NRL, coming in their 25th season.

What's more, that match could also see Roger Tuivasa-Sheck play his 150th first-grade game, while Solomone Kata could notch his 100th game for the Warriors, the 24th player to do so.

The Warriors' centurions in 2019 won't stop there, with David Fusitu'a eyeing the possibility of reaching the 100 game club against the Sea Eagles on August 9, while prop Sam Lisone could reach the mark if the club make the finals.

As far as players to cross 200 NRL appearances, both Leeson Ah Mau could reach the mark against the Roosters on August 18, while Gerard Beale could do so against the Raiders on September 7.

Elsewhere, Blake Green and Tohu Harris could reach 150 first-grade games, both coming against the Broncos on May 25 and July 13 respectively.

The Warriors begin their 2019 NRL season against the Bulldogs at Mt Smart Stadium on March 16.
