James Maloney celebrates Mitchell Pearce's milestone.
James Maloney is proudly wearing his support for Sydney Roosters teammate Mitchell Pearce who celebrates his 150th top grade game on Monday night when the competition frontrunners play the Wests Tigers.
Maloney sent a tweet to his 17,000 followers with “Jnr 150” painted on his chest, holding balloons on Monday.
He posted on the social networking site “I don't know about u, but I'm excited for @mitch-pearce7 150th....great player, better bloke."
Pearce, 24, will become the second youngest player in the game's history to play 150 games when his Roosters take on Wests Tigers at Allianz Stadium on Monday night. Former Canterbury, Western Suburbs and Sydney Roosters player Paul Langmack was 53 days younger than Pearce when he reached the milestone.
The NSW halfback had a message of his own for his almost 5000 followers on Monday.
“Thanks to everyone for the support for me and the team tonight should b a great atmosphere for the boys,” he tweeted.
Pearce will line up against his form halves partner Braith Anasta, who will wear the No.7 jersey for the Tigers.
