Fus reaches 150

Felise Kaufusi will play his 150th NRL game on Saturday night in a match that could see Storm secure the all-time record for longest winning streak in Australian rugby league history, but Fus isn't too concerned about the milestone or the record.

"We know as a team there's a bigger goal and that's being there at the end of the year and holding that trophy up," Fus said to media this week.

"For me, it's just another game. I'm sure when footy's done I'll look back and really appreciate being able to reach this milestone."

Now 29, the Queenslander made his debut in round one of 2015 and has played 20-plus NRL matches in each of his last five seasons on top of 12 State of Origin matches for the Maroons, four Tests for Australia and three for Tonga.

On his career highlight so far - in a career that has seen some highs - Fus said his NRL debut was still the favourite.

"Just to play that one game of NRL, that’s always been my dream and I did that back in 2015," he said.

"I was a bit of a late bloomer. I think I was maybe 23, 24."

Storm General Manager – Football Frank Ponissi said Kaufusi had developed into a forward leader for Storm.

"He’s an integral part of our forward pack and has stepped up to our leadership group, helping our younger forwards on and off the field," he said.

"The Kaufusi family has had a proud history with Storm, starting with Antonio back in 2003 before Felise and then Patrick wore the purple jersey.

"We’re sure Felise has plenty of good football in front of him and love having his wife Bec and children as part of our wider Storm family."
