Melbourne Storm great retires from rugby league
Melbourne Storm legend Cameron Smith has announced his retirement from Rugby League.
The 37-year-old leaves the game after 433 matches with the Melbourne storm as the all-time top point-scorer.
Sam Thaiday played alongside him and said Smith will go down as one of the greatest players of all-time.
“There hasn’t been too many as good as he has been,” he told 6PR’s Millsy at Midday.
“He was a great leader of men, he led by example on the field as well.
“He was very welcoming, and he also pushed you as a player to be better, and that’s what you want from your leaders.”
Smith made the announcement at the unveiling of his statue AAMI park, alongside fellow Storm legend Billy Slater.
