NRL: Warriors' Adam Blair to join 300 club against Gold Coast Titans

Forward Adam Blair will celebrate his 300th NRL game when the Warriors take on the Gold Coast Titans on Friday night.

Blair will become the fifth Warriors player to achieve the feat when the teams run out at Robina Stadium - alongside Ruben Wiki, Steve Price, Simon Mannering, and Ryan Hoffman - and just the 36th in the competition's history.

The 33-year-old made his first-grade debut in 2006 in a career that has included 121 games for Melbourne (2006-2011), 71 for Wests Tigers (2012-2014) and 74 for Brisbane (2015-2017).

There are just two changes to the starting line-up that capitulated against the Melbourne Storm last weekend, with Patrick Herbert (leg) and Jazz Tevaga (anle) returning from injury.

Tevaga will fill the vacancy created by prop Chris Satae’s one-match suspension for a dangerous contact charge.

On Tuesday, coach Stephen Kearney revealed that a group of players including Blake Green, Issac Luke, Karl Lawton had been struck down had been struck down by a bout of gastroenteritis.

But the team doctor deemed it nothing more than a 24-hour bug, and Kearney expects to have all four in action back to full strength on Friday.

The Warriors will be looking to avoid a three-game losing skid, and who better to do that against the Titans, against who they have their best winning percentage against with a 68 percent success rate.

They've won 17 of 25 encounters between the two sides, including 15 of the last 17 since 2011.

That said, the Titans emerged victorous last time the teams played at their home ground, and should be emboldened by an upset win over their rival Brisbane Broncos on Sunday.
