Where do you even begin to summarise season 2017 for Smith?

The Storm skipper broke just about every NRL record humanly possible; most premiership goals in history, most wins, most games as captain and most points by a forward.

However the record that solidified his place as a future immortal came in the Qualifying Final of the Finals he entered a whole new level of greatness, playing his 356th NRL game to surpass Darren Lockyer for most games played in NRL history.

He led Storm for points scored for the 12th consecutive season, with his 194 points falling just two shy of his record breaking tally last season.

Even in the representative arena Smith broke new ground, smashing the State of Origin appearance record as he became the first player to play in 40 Origin games.

The ANZAC Test in May also saw the 34-year-old become just the second Australian player to reach 50 games.

After achieving all that in a just one season it is no surprise he was crowned the Dally M Player of the Year for a second time and received his seventh Storm Player of the Year honour.

The trophy cabinet at the Smith household is now in need of some serious renovation but the one he would hold most dear is the big one he shared with his teammates on Grand Final Day.

He may have another year to run of his current contract but if his season is anything to go by there is no reason why Smith and his record-breaking ways will be slowing down any time soon.
