Captain Smith enters the record books

Cameron Smith will lead Australia for the 20th time on Friday night and in doing so will become just the sixth player in history to achieve the feat.

The Melbourne Storm, Queensland and Australian captain will enter the record books and sit alongside rugby league's elite after the Kangaroos' match in Brisbane. Darren Lockyer (38), Clive Churchill (27), Brad Fittler (25), Mal Meninga (24) and Wally Lewis (24) are the only other men to have captained Australia 20 or more times.

Smith's Kangaroos debut came in the end of year Tri-Nations series in 2006 and the 31-year old first captained his country in 2007.

Overall he has made 41 Test appearances for Australia.
