NRL Social: Milestones, team songs and a stunning 'off-field backflip'

After another stunning weekend of footy, NRL.com recaps some of the best social media posts from all of your favourite players from the past week.

A Nightingale to remember

Dragons fan favourite Jason Nightingale clocked up his 250th NRL appearance at Jubilee Oval on Friday night, much to the delight of his fans and his teammates.

Euan Aitken shared this post-game photo from the sheds saying "stoked to get the win for @gypsy_no5 250th! Things to improve on but we’ll take the two points".

 

 The man of the night also commemorated the occasion via Instagram.

"Such a special moment to share with all the people who have motivated me throughout my career,” Nightingale said.

On the bus!

The Wests Tigers also had a night to remember across the ditch defeating Melbourne 11-10, propelling them to fourth on the Telstra Premiership ladder.

Michael Chee Kam celebrated with teammate Esan Marsters. The Auckland-born Tigers duo loved producing the win on home soil.

Family first

Running out Saturday night for the New Zealand Warriors was also a special occasion for Adam Blair. His son Harlem ran out with the squad before their game against the Cowboys.

"Such a special moment not only for my son but as a father. Seeing him run our @nzwarriors team out tonight. Proud dad right there," Blair wrote on Instagram.

Move out of your head

On Thursday, Panthers forward Trent Merrin joined 50 students in a flash mob dance in Sydney's Martin Place to raise further awareness for the "Move Out of Your Head" campaign.

"Mental health affects so many of us, and we need to combat it in a fun and positive way, which is why dancing is so powerful," he said. Go to Move Out of Your Head for more information.

Sauce on song

And Josh Mansour celebrated another win with the Panthers, with the club now sitting fourth on the ladder.  Good to see injured halfback Nathan Cleary avoiding filming the team song for Josh like he had to last week! 

Malcolm in the Middle

Lastly, when it comes to Sydney Roosters fans, the Chooks had a special guest in the winners circle last Friday night after their win over the Sharks. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull watched the game with the punters before heading into the Roosters' change room to congratulate the squad.
