Storm and Australian Captain Cameron Smith knows better than most the Kangaroos have a mammoth task on their hands if they are to stop Kiwi prop Jesse Bromwich on Friday night.

Speaking to the media yesterday, Smith handed out glowing praise to his Club teammate who has enjoyed a stellar 18 months which has seen the 25-year old forward develop into one of rugby league's premier big men.

"We've got a huge job on our hands," Smith said when asked about Bromwich.

"Every team we've played this year (at Storm), they've found it quite hard to stop his momentum and his running.

"The form he's been in over the last two of years, it's hard to keep him out of the game.

"Really what we've got to try and do is minimise the impact he has on the match.

"He's playing extremely well at the moment, he's very confident, he's got so many attributes to his game. He's got the whole package."
