David 'Modra' Richards became the youngest New England Nomad to take the field for 150 games as the side pulled off a victory against competition leaders the Tamworth Kangaroos on Saturday.
"You couldn't have asked for a better day," Nomads coach Clarrie Barker said.
"We were all getting around it and that was our biggest driving factor of the day was to give back to Mod for what he has given to us.
"It is ridiculous considering how little amount of games you play in a season, it is incredible to get to 50 games, let alone 150.
'Moddie had his whole family there and a few ex-players and the likes came through so it was a very special day for him."
The Roos also had a player who reached the milestone on the same day in Luke Robinson.
The Nomads found themselves behind on the scoreboard by six at the end of the first quarter but a dominant second saw them race away 10.5-65 to 5.3-33 at half-time.
They "slacked off" later in the game to allow the Roos back in but did enough to eventually take the game 15.7-97 to 13.9-87.
"It was a bit unfortunate to have a bit of a quieter second-half," Barker said.
"We could have certainly turned it on and really put some numbers on them but we sort of switched off a little bit and gave them the opportunity to come back.
"We got the win in the end which is what we wanted to do for Mod which is all we were worrying about."
Three rounds remain in the regular season with the Nomads scheduled to face the Narrabri-Moree joint venture this Saturday.
Notoriously poor travellers, Barker isn't holding his hopes too high that they will get on the park.
"We are hoping they make the trip to Armidale," he said.
"They didn't come a few weekends ago so we are not holding too much faith."
The Nomads then play Inverell and Tamworth Swans to round out the season.
