Mitchell Aubusson celebrated a stellar NRL career in Round 13 when he played his 300th first-grade game for the Sydney Roosters after arriving at the club as a 16-year-old and crafting his trade with the Newtown Jets.
He became just the third player to play 300 games for the club and it was fitting he crossed for a try in their hard-fought 24-16 victory over St George Illawarra Dragons.
Aubusson was also a core part of the Jets' successful 2006 and 2007 campaigns and was part of their heartbreaking loss to the Eels in the 2006 Grand Fina, before current Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler handed him his NRL debut in Round 1 of the 2007 NRL season.
Fast track 13 seasons later and Aubusson is revered as the ultimate clubman who will do whatever it takes for his team-mates, and it's culminated into three premierships (2013, 2018, 2019) that are proudly etched in the club's history.
He requires just three games to surpass Anthony Minichiello as the most capped Roosters player of all time, a fitting reward for a player who has built a reputation as the player that everyone wants to play with.
