Smith was signalling to the fans after the match that he’s going to the broncos
Captain/coach with Walters his assistant?
We'll get a gauge on how great Smith is about 5 or 10 years after retirement. If the Storm fall in a heap then he'll be remembered as the GOAT.
Depends if Bellamy is there
If Jason Ryles takes over then the club will get kicked out of the comp
Just listened to the link - it's definitely there - around the 1.27 mark right when Gould started talking. I guess the media can get the clean version of it.
this is a great clip - take away all the crappy MMA tackles they do, but this shows how from the top down the storm are after perfection - wins the comp and just leaves the room still pissed lol.
Is this confirmed? Why would Harry Grant choose the Tigers if Smith goes round again? There’s a few clubs would welcome him.
if he retires, his last in game action will be missing a tackle that lead to a try, but then he won a premiership right after.
life gives you ups and downs.
It would have been biblical..
Smith made a valid point... If you watch the last 15/20 minutes of that match it did appear like they wanted a close finish.
It was replayed in clear audio on Fox League last night.
I agree, but when Tallis correctly pointed out that his side were robbed in 2000 he was sent off.
True but its probably more the manner in which he said it. Blatant and language.
this 100% would be it, Smith knows how to sweet talk the refs without pissing them off - i can see why it pisses off oposition fans but its a skill regardless
other players would come bounding up to them swearing and speaking bogan expecting the same treatment
Cam wins his 8th Storm POTY award
Sterlo's take on Inside the NRL was that he's not necessarily the greatest player but the most influential, and that for him it was an important distinction.
He definitely knows where the line is with every ref and dances around it like a pro. Bar that one time when Cecchin binned him, of course,
Courage and commitment personified
Storm icon Cameron Smith had constant painkilling injections in his shoulder during the final two months of a triumphant NRL season, a new report has revealed.
Melbourne won the grand final over Penrith on Sunday, ending a painful and courageous run for their veteran captain.
Smith injured the AC joint in his left shoulder during a round 12 win over Newcastle and missed three games, yet the joint never properly healed, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. It was too painful for him to swing a golf club but he still managed to lead his team to a premiership, while the club kept the problem a secret.
"He had to get needled every game to play out the season," Storm football manager Frank Ponissi told the Herald.
"He even had to get needled at times so he could train.
This is the perfect take..
There has been a lot better League players over the years Smith has just been more influential.
Wow, talk about courage!! Players never have to get needles! He's so brave!
