Newcastle hooker Danny Buderus, who recently equalled Andrew Johns’ long-standing record of 249 games for the club, will become a record breaker against Cronulla on Saturday.
Buderus, 35, levelled with Johns last Friday when he took part in the Knights 18-all draw with Brisbane and the former Leeds man is honoured.
He said, “I came back from England thinking maybe that was achievable and after two back operations this year I thought I was a long way away to even getting close to equalling it let alone breaking it.
“I look forward to the Sharks on Saturday night and 250 for this great club. I am honoured.”
