Sharks forward Chris Heighington.

Cronulla forward Chris Heighington will become the 26th player to achieve the 300-game milestone when he takes the field against Newcastle tomorrow.

Heighington will be presented with the match ball from his 300th game following the round-five clash at Southern Cross Group Stadium tomorrow, officially making him a member of the '300 Club'.

"What Chris has achieved during his career is quite incredible," NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.

"Two Premierships at two different clubs, 11 years apart, and now 300 NRL games, will place Chris in rarefied air.

"He will be a deserved member of the '300 Club' and on behalf of all rugby league fans I would like to congratulate him on this fantastic achievement."
