This is just a couple shy of the AFL record of the 13 milestones, which occurred in Round 18 2014 - Interestingly Lachie Henderson played his 100th game in that round with Carlton and his 200th on the weekend of course now with Geelong.
The opening game on Thursday also saw four of those milestone players in action, with Charlie Spargo 50 games, Ed Langdon 100 games, Max Gawn 150 games for Melbourne and Steven Motlop 200 games for Port. The consecutive 50-100-150-200 milestone, is the 6th time this has occurred in AFL history and the first since Rd 2 2009 between West Coast and Port which included Matt Rosa’s 50th for the Eagles and Shaun Burgoyne’s 150th for the Power.
