Stalwart Hurricanes lock Jeremy Thrush will play his 100th Super Rugby match tonight against the Waratahs in Wellington.

Thrush, who will celebrate his 30th birthday on Sunday, made his debut for the Hurricanes against the Waratahs seven years ago in 2008.

A perenial fan-favourite, he will become just the seventh Hurricanes player to reach 100 Super Rugby matches.
