    510 if you include NSW and Kangaroos. Hard core.
    With rep games Cam so far is up to 445. If he plays 2 more seasons without major injury (including origins and Tests) that will put him damn close.

    I think that is a bit harsh on Beaver. Not his fault Manly have been paying people out of brown paper bags.

    What makes Smith better than most players is that he is just as good back in the NRL as he is in SOO. Many Queenslanders lift for Origin - Smith is already there.

    No where near, Wally Lewis and Andrew Johns best players Ive witness, what I got to see from Smith is chicken Wings, Headlocks, Wrestling moves, moves that a chiropractor will take notice..Didn't see Andrew Johns or Wally Lewis doing that shit.

    If I was starting a club and had a time capsule to go back and sign any 16 year old to be the clubs leader and franchise player for the years ahead, I'd go and sign Smith every day of the week over any other player I've seen play. He delivers not only on the field with his play, but in his club leadership and his presence off the field. Cant think of another player that can deliver all three so consistently over such a long period of time.

    Johns and Lewis both outstanding on the field no question.

    Smith has been definitely been the most successful player of the modern era.
