Lillyman set for 150th on Sunday
Tue 29th March, 04:22PM

Seasoned campaigner Jacob Lillyman becomes just the 11th player to make 150 NRL appearances for the Vodafone Warriors when he fronts the Sydney Roosters in Sunday’s fifth-round encounter at Central Coast Stadium (2.00pm kick-off local; 4.00pm NZT).

It’s the second significant milestone in nine months for the 11-game Queensland Origin forward after making his 200th career appearance against Canberra last June.

With his partner Tui-kaye Cole and daughter Arani present, the 32-year-old was presented with a commemorative jersey by long-time team-mate Simon Mannering at a team lunch today.

Now in his 14th season since his NRL debut with North Queensland in 2003, Lillyman has underlined his durability and consistency time and again. Indeed, since midway through the 2012 campaign he has appeared in 87 of a possible 92 matches for the club.

On Sunday he’ll draw level with fellow Queenslander Micheal Luck as the only other Australian in the Vodafone Warriors’ 150 club; Luck played 150 times from 2006-2012 before retiring.

While Lillyman prepares for a special moment in his eighth season since joining the club in 2009, fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck faces one in his debut campaign when he comes up against his old Roosters side for the first time.

For the fourth straight game this season, Tuivasa-Sheck hit the 200-metre mark in yesterday’s 40-18 win over Newcastle, running 203 metres from 21 runs; he also put Solomone Kata in for his try and had a key hand in Tuimoala Lolohea’s second half touchdown.

“These are two big moments for Jake and Tui,” said Vodafone Warriors assistant coach Andrew Webster.

“Jake is hugely popular around the team and can always be counted on to perform at a consistently high level.

“Roger has been great for us since the start of the season and went better again against the Knights. His combinations are really developing and we’re seeing the benefits of what he provides for us.”

Webster said there was room for satisfaction over beating the Knights for the first win of the year but the quality of the overall performance wasn’t up to expectations.

“We felt we played a lot better when we lost to Brisbane and Melbourne in our previous two games,” he said.

“There are a lot of areas we need to improve in when we take on the Roosters. We were just too sloppy at times.”

The Vodafone Warriors have named the same side used against Newcastle yesterday.

Centre Kata and Albert Vete, who started at loose forward, came out of the match with leg knocks but Webster said there was confidence both would be able to play against the Roosters.

Simon Mannering has again been named to start in the second row with Vete at loose forward.

The Vodafone Warriors have won 18 of the 35 clashes against the Roosters while they’ve lost 16 with one draw. In 17 away games the record is 8-8 with one draw.

Considering the various degrees of shocking that both teams have looked, this is a hard one to pick. IN THEORY we should destroy them. I'm just not that confident though. Hopefully the team backs up the good things they did yesterday and improves on the things they stuffed up.

They want to build confidence.

Changing players around risks undermining confidence.

Having said that I expect TL will take Tevanga's spot on the bench.

Makes a lot of sense to me, even though it will be a very unpopular decision. Cappy might even be emboldened to swap TL with Robson.

TL will only last a few rounds.

His big hitting contact style and more direct running....his train hard approach....his age...all count against him.

I full expect this to happen as well, but with a caveat - it will only be temporary. If TL can stay fit, he'll take Robson's spot and within four rounds, I expect Tevanga to reclaim his spot on the bench.
Where it makes sense is:

Tevanga is a genuine prospect, they need to manage his NRL /NSW cup games carefully, I would hate to see a player like that burn out in season one of their career.

TL and Luke are a proven World class combo with bags of experience playing effectively in the same side together....in a perfect world....Robo would be keeping TL on the bench with stella combination in the halves with Johnson (that is just not happening, and where TL has the edge over Tevanga in that 14 Jumper is TL can cover the halves).

TL is one of the few players that listens to the coach ( I don't care what anyone says....the only way you get love like he has from Cappy and Doyle in this team...is by being a team player with a professional attitude).

Personally I am not a fan of TL in the halves....but I can't fault him at Hooker....the Kiwis go up a gear when he comes on...especially when Luke is still on the field and they give NZ two dummy half options....TL plays out of his skin in that scenario (I'm picking he will be the missing factor to fire up Luke in a Warriors Jersey...they have a long standing rivalry).

It is a mystery to me...
How TL can...when playing Dummy half....choose great options that lead to so many Kiwi try s oring movements...while at the same time...as a Warrior half....over calling Johnson and generally stifling the better options on the table.

It is especially infuriating....since TL the Kiwi....at Dummy half.....knows to get good ball to Johnson early.

Two things I wish for with this guy:

He brings his respect for Johnson in Kiwi Jumper to a Warriors side.

He intimidates his team mates into listening to the coach and working hard off the field.

In a way, it would send a solid message
If TL had to prove his fitness in a NSW cup game this week.

There are a lot of double standards at the Warriors.

TL and Manu are protected species, as is Captain Hoffman just now....you could argue Shaun Johnson is case as well....

As much as we need our veterans.....as much as they have earned their spots over the course of time....it would be nice for a change to see guaranteed players humble themselves in the lower grades when form drops.

But let's be real. A coach at the coach killing club....with a six round life span.....isn't going to operate the way they would in charge of a consistent NRL team.

That's the main reason I don't support sacking this coach.....

Totally agree Dave but you know how us fans get all frothy when we see a prospect as good as him. We burn the coaches house down if he doesn't get picked.

But in all seriousness he should go back down when LooLooEyes comes back. Ease him in gently.

Yep. And this is exactly what I kept reminding people on this forum about regarding Kata... He was getting roundly slated on here, but the kid played every game in his first year in FG in one of the most difficult positions on the field - and it took its toll... He got burnt out. But, due to our horrific injury toll last year, there was little choice but to keep playin him.

Now look at him - he's leveling fools with and without the ball, and making massive plays for us. All the difficulties of last year have made him a better player - and I think there's a lot room for improvement still.

And just on Jazz and Sol, I think one of the most pleasing aspects of the last couple of seasons, has been the emergence of players through our system that play with the same kind of heart and intensity that we've been sorely lacking in recent times. For the longest time we could really only rely on Manu to consistently bring that sort of energy to the team... Playing with everything he had. Now we have players like Sam Lisone, Sol, Jazz, Gubb, Albert and critically, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, bringing that same enthusiasm and effort. It's really pleasing to see.

Contrary to many forum dwellers I rate Jacob and congratulate him on reaching this milestone but also for his solid performances week in and week out. Not in the same class as Burgess or other top props but brings a wealth of experience to our young guns.

No surprise we name the same team. When you play Monday you almost always name the same team.

Will be interesting to see if Thompson comes in.

Kata vs Ferguson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck vs his old side are the two curious ones for me outside of the obvious pack vs pack that we generally struggle to win against the Roosters.
