FUIFUI Moimoi — arguably one of Parramatta's greatest cult heroes — played his 200th game in the blue and gold in Saturday's 32-12 win against Cronulla.

After making his debut against Manly in round six in 2004, Moimoi has been a with the fans for more than a decade.

The big runs, the crazy hair styles, the big Fui chants — he has been an entertainer, as well as one of the most enduring props in recent times.

The 34-year-old has developed into a leader on and off the field, being a mentor young forwards like Junior Paulo in the infancy of their NRL careers.

Earlier this year Moimoi was counting down the games to the milestone:

"To play 200 games for this club will be a big honour. It is a good club and they have looked after me throughout my career," he said.

Moimoi was typically strong in his milestone game which kept the Eels finals chances alive as they head to Darwin to play Canberra on Saturday.
