Wolves' star Simon Grix made his 150th appearance for the club in yesterday's game against Salford City Reds.
The 27-year-old from Halifax has been with the Wolves since 2004, having played as a teenager for his hometown club Halifax RLFC.
Grix is the ultimate utility player, having played in many different positions for the Wolves, including centre, stand-off, loose forward and second row.
Often one of the unsung heroes of the Warrington side, Grix has come to secure his place in the 17 having made 26 appearances last season and 18 to his name so far this season along with four tries.
To mark this special milestone former Warrington player Paul Sculthorpe was invited down to training to present Simon with his commemorative playing shirt.
Paul spent his teenage years at Warrington after he was spotted playing for his local amateur club in Oldham at the age of 14.
He went on to make 78 appearances for Warrington in four seasons at the club.
In this time he registered 17 tries and a drop goal to bring his points tally to 69 as well as being appointed as a captain at the age of just 19.
Sculthorpe was transferred to St Helens in 1997 for a then world record fee for a forward.
