Talks have begun to continue Cameron Smith's playing career beyond 2018.

The Storm faithful will be hoping that Smith opts to head into an 18th NRL season given his current season has been just as dominant as his last, in which he was named the 2017 Dally M Player of the Year.

Currently on 374 games, should Smith opt to play on an additional year he would be within reach of becoming the foundation member of the NRL's 400-club.

However that decision of whether the 35-year-old plays on will solely be up to the future immortal.

"He (Cameron) has earned the right to take his time," Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi told The Daily Telegraph.
"But talks are progressing well with Cameron. That said it is still very early days.

"Whilst Cameron has not made a definitive decision on his future post 2018, he has indicated a desire to continue playing at this stage.

"But he will let us know his future in due course."
