St George Illawarra Dragons prop Jack de Belin will make his milestone 50th first-grade appearance against the Parramatta Eels at Pirtek Stadium, Parramatta on Saturday.
De Belin, 23, made his debut for the Dragons during the 2011 campaign against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and was named as the National Youth Competition ‘Player of the Year’ in 2011.
“Jack shows a lot of enthusiasm whenever he takes to the field and it is terrific that he is approaching such a milestone at a young age,” said Price.
"The players have responded to my words from the weekend with a positive training session which I will review with my coaching staff.
"I don't regret what I said as it's about being brutally honest, we are a proud footy team and are part of a proud football club.
"Parramatta have performed well on the park this season and will be wanting to impress their home supporters so it's up to us to turn-up and respond in the right manner."
