Half century beckons for Smith
Cameron Smith will play his 50th game for Australia when he leads the Kangaroos out for the ANZAC test on May 5.
The Storm skipper will become just the second Australian player to reach the milestone after Darren Lockyer, who played 59 games in the green and gold.
Smith will once again captain Mal Meninga’s side that also includes champion halfback Cooper Cronk as well as centre Will Chambers.
Storm’s representative players have a busy schedule ahead of them with back-to-back five-day turnarounds.
They travel to Wollongong this Sunday to take on the Dragons before next Friday’s test match in Canberra.
