Leigh Centurions captain Micky Higham reaches an amazing personal milestone on Friday.

When he leads out his hometown club in the Betfred Super League Round 22 game at Huddersfield Giants Micky will be playing his 500th career game.

  • 96 games in two spells for Leigh (1999-2000 & 2015-2017),
  • St Helens (116 games, 2001-2005),
  • Wigan (97 games, 2006-2008),
  • Warrington (175 games, 2009-2015),

 

Representative:

  • Great Britain (4 Tests, 2004-2005),
  • England (4 games, 2008-2009),
  • England ‘A’ (4 games, 2002-2003),
  • England under-21s (2 games, 2001) and the Super League under-21 side (1 game, 2001).
