Hoffman to play 250th in Melbourne
Storm life member and premiership player Ryan Hoffman will play his 250th NRL game in Melbourne on Monday - in a Warriors jersey.
Hoffman is in his first season with the Warriors after joining the Auckland-based outfit at the end of 2014 and ironically will play his milestone match against the Club where he started his 12-year first-grade career.
The second-rower made 245 first-grade appearances for Melbourne since his debut in 2003, appearing in 21 finals matches, including four grand finals.
The 31-year old has made a strong start to life as a Warrior scoring three tries in the opening four rounds.
While wearing different colours, Monday’s game will be a great way to acknowledge a favourite Storm son. Hoffman will be presented with the match ball on the ground following the match.
