After making his debut in 2005, former warriors skipper Simon Mannering will make his 294th appearance for the club this Sunday.

The Warriors take on the Melbourne Storm this weekend. Mannering is also on track to play his 300th game in final round of the regular season.

Sadly during his press conference at Mt Smart Stadium yesterday, Mannering called time on his career.

I’ve often marvelled at the way he’s managed to carry on through adversity
