Cameron Smith has become just the second Australian player in rugby league history to play 50 games for his country.
Smith achieved the special milestone in Friday night’s ANZAC Test against New Zealand in Canberra.
He joins Darren Lockyer (59 games) as the only players to reach the half-century mark in the green and gold.
In his 27th game as Australia skipper, equaling the great Clive Churchill, Smith was honoured with having a gold kangaroo embroided on his jersey.
The Kanagroos showed their class from start to finish, gaining control of the Test match from the early stages in the contest to run out eventual 30-12 winners. Storm's Will Chambers found himself on the scoresheet during the first half, finding the try line before half-time to help give the green and gold an 18-0 lead.
