Proctor to hit 150
Fan favourite Kevin Proctor will play his 150th game on Monday night, marking another milestone for the New Zealand international.
Proctor, who joined Melbourne in 2008, will become only the 10th Storm player to reach 150 games for the Club, adding his name to an illustrious list including current teammates Cameron Smith, Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk and Ryan Hinchcliffe.
Proctor joined the Club straight out of high school, making his Storm debut in 2008 following an impressive stint in the National Youth Competition.
The 26-year-old has been crucial to Storm’s success in recent years, becoming a mainstay in the second-row for Craig Bellamy’s side. Proctor has missed just nine games in the past six years and has featured in all 20 of Storm’s matches to date so far in 2015.
Last year, Proctor committed to the Club for a further four years, which will make him a 10-year Melbourne Storm player at the conclusion of the deal.
Speaking to Storm TV, Proctor discussed what the upcoming milestone meant to him.
“It’s a massive privilege to play 150 games for such a great Club,” Proctor said.
“I am grateful of everything I have achieved. It is because of this Club…the Club have put me in this situation and I’m really grateful of everything they have done.”
