We're looking forward to it: Smith
Upon arrival at Perth Airport on Thursday, Melbourne Captain Cameron Smith has declared his side is looking forward to showcasing rugby league to the Western Australian public.
"We're glad to be in WA at the moment and looking forward to the match on Saturday," Smith said at Perth Airport yesterday.
"I think its going to be a great game of footy, its good to have two quality sides over in Perth to promote the game.
"I've been over here twice before to play an NRL match and we've had great crowds, so hopefully there is a bumper crowd over here on Saturday as well.
"The guys that have been here before, we've really enjoyed our time in the West."
Melbourne enter the match undefeated, sitting in second place on the NRL table however Smith believes there is still plenty of improvement in his side, highlighting discipline was one focus area.
"We're three and zero, we're playing okay but we could play better so hopefully a good performance is coming on Saturday," Smith said.
"Where we have struggled in our first two rounds is in our discipline and giving away some cheap penalties to the opposition and really building pressure on ourselves.
"I think that is an area we really need to look at and improve on."
Smith also through his support behind injured Newcastle Knight Alex McKinnon, reinforcing the rugby league community's well wishes.
"We're all very concerned for Alex and we hope his recovery is a good one and happens fairly quickly," Smith said.
"Our thoughts are with Alex and his family at the moment."
