Cameron Smith to play on in 2019

Recommended Posts

Cameron Smith has said that he intends to play on in 2019 and he wants Storm and his management to get together and make it happen, as his current contract runs out at the end of the season.

Of all the ‘greats’ playing this season, he has shown good form and has remained at a level where he is key and pivot for the Storm, not to mention an experienced hand as captain.

A few weeks ago on  the Matty Johns show the Professor had a gold whistle to present him with on retirement.

Cameron Smith the man whose built a career on a forward pass from dummy half, to run along side his other one as referee's controller 😁

Cameron Smith. Always composed and professional, naturally doing his best for his team. Any sensible club would have loved to have had him playing for them.

Someone, on an other forum, called him 'the best pocket referee of all time'. I do agree with this statement. :D

I also agree with your last sentence. I'd probably be happy if he was playing for the Sharks... but quite frankly, while he's probably a great guy, I can't stand him.

Good player, though.

As of today:

Quote

Melbourne Storm skipper Cameron Smith will have a chance to become the first player in NRL history to play 400 games, with Smith all but signing on the dotted line for a one-year extension into 2019.

The proposed deal, which has been reported by The Saturday Telegraph at $1 million for the season, was confirmed to the publication by Storm CEO Dave Donaghy, who is confident Smith will go around again next season.

“Our discussions all the way through have been really positive and I’m confident we’ll see Cameron play on in 2019,” Donaghy said.

“Cameron’s still playing at the highest level, his standards haven’t dropped and when he ultimately finishes his career, he will be remembered as one of, if not the greatest rugby league player in history.

“He has the opportunity to do something nobody else in the game has ever done – play 400 games of NRL. And nobody may ever do it again. That would be a remarkable achievement given how tough our game is, but even more remarkable is that you won’t hear him talk it up himself, he’s too humble for that and it’s all about the team for Cameron.

“If he’s able to achieve it, in Melbourne Storm colours, that’s something our organisation would be immensely proud of. He’s given an enormous amount of his life to our football club, it’s been a wonderful partnership for a long, long time.”

Smith currently sits on 382 games, and could potentially play two more this season, with Melbourne set to face off against Cronulla next Friday night for a spot in the Grand Final.
