Half a ton for Brandon Smith

Brandon 'Hectic Cheese' Smith will play his 50th NRL game in the purple jersey tonight, and if it's anything like his first 49 games, the human wrecking ball will bring the pride and passion that has made him a fan favourite.


The 24-year-old New Zealand international was named Best Interchange Player in the comp after a career-best season in 2019 and undoubtedly deserves the title.

A genuine utility player who is pretty much elite wherever he starts, we love his electrifying impact on the field and his good-humoured personality on the training track and around the club.

In five appearances this season he has crossed for two tries and powered to 476 total running metres.

We hope this is the first of many milestones at Melbourne Storm for Smith - we've had a decent run with his namesake so far...
