Smith to break Churchill’s record
Cameron Smith will play his 36th consecutive test on Friday night.
The Storm skipper will break the record currently held by rugby league immortal Clive Churchill when he leads Australia out for their World Cup game against France.
It is an incredible run of consecutive matches for his country that dates all the way back to the 2009 Four Nations.
This accolade will be the latest in a seemingly never-ending list of accomplishments for Smith.
The 34-year-old claimed his second Dally M Player of the Year honour this season as well as a seventh Storm Player of the Year honour.
Smith holds just about every rugby league record possible and Friday night will see him move past one of the greatest of all time – a tag he appears more deserving of himself with every day that passes.
