100-game milestone had special meaning for Rats’ warhorse Wes Thomas

By Jon Geddes

WARRINGAH hooker Wes Thomas has paid an emotional tribute to his teammates as he celebrated a memorable 100th grade game for the club in their 26-13 win over Randwick at Narrabeen on Saturday.

The powerhouse 26-year-old capped a standout performance by scoring one try and giving the final pass for another in what was a high-quality clash  between two well-drilled outfits.

Looking around at the other players in a jubilant Rat Park home dressing room, Thomas revealed the special bond he shares with them gave the  milestone extra meaning.

“They are my family and I love coming here every week,” he said. “The boys are my brothers and always pushing me.

“I love this club, I played Colts here,” said Thomas, who grew up in Rats territory at Dee Why.


THOMAS scored his try in the first half with an incisive sprint after peeling off a rolling maul and after the break slipped a beautiful pass in traffic for centre Komiti Tuilagi to cross for a crucial five-pointer.
