Mortimer’s 100th NRL match

Titans halfback Daniel Mortimer plays his 100th NRL match when his side goes against the Dragons at Jubilee Oval on Sunday.

He said he’s proud of the milestone after what has been a tough career at times.

“It’s a big week for the club with a couple of big milestones… so it’s exciting,” he said.


“I’ve got a few family that are going to turn up – but yeah I’m very excited to run out there for the hundredth time.

“It was one of my biggest personal milestones,” he said.

But Mortimer admits it wasn’t all smooth sailing.

“It was looking a bit shaky a couple of years ago and you know it’s taken a lot of effort and perseverance,” he said.

“But yeah, I’m very happy to get that milestone.

“I’m very proud of I guess the way I’ve kept in there.”

It will be his ninth appearance for his new club after 48 for the Eels and 43 for the Roosters, two of which were grand finals.

The Titans haven’t met with the Dragons since round 15, where a field goal was all that separated them.

Kick off is at 3pm on Sunday.
