Randall to hit Harlequins century


Chad Randall will make his 100th appearance for Harlequins when he takes to the field against Hull KR on Friday night.

The 28-year-old played his first game in Harlequins colours against Huddersfield on 19th March 2006. Whilst other players have reached one hundred games for the capital’s only Super League club, these have included appearances for the London Broncos. Randall is the first player to reach this milestone for Harlequins Rugby League.

Speaking about reaching his century on Friday, the Australian hooker said: “This club has strong links to the rugby union club, which possess an incredible history. To enter the record books as the first player to play one hundred games for the league side is a great honour.”

Randall is set to add to this honour shortly, when he hopes to make his 100th consecutive appearance for Harlequins, having not missed a game for the club in over three years.

“I missed a game a few weeks after my debut through sickness, but have played in every one since. I still get nervous before each game, but I think that’s best, it keeps me on my toes.”

Looking ahead to Friday night’s match, Randall is primarily concerned with taking care of Hull KR.

“We struggled against them in the reverse fixture earlier this season, but that was during a very difficult and busy stage of the competition when it was hard to predict who would win or lose any game.

“We’re looking forward to the rematch; they’re playing really well so it will be a good test for us.”
