Meet Cameron Smith

Over the course of his illustrious career, Cameron has proven to be one of the most consistent performers the game has ever seen and is widely regarded as one of the world’s best players.

Since making his debut for Melbourne in Round 2, 2002, Cameron has made the Melbourne Storm, Queensland and Australian number nine jersey his own. His durability and leadership have become highly-acclaimed features of his game as he has compiled an impressive list of honours to date.

2003 saw Cameron win the Melbourne Storm Rookie of the Year Award as well as his first Queensland Origin cap at the tender age of 20. He went on to win the Storm Player of the Year Award in 2005 before his career really took off the following year.

2006 saw Cameron make his international debut for the Kangaroos, take home both the Storm Player of the Year and Dally M Awards and lead his club to its first of four consecutive NRL Grand Final appearances.

Cameron continued his great form through 2007 where he took home the Wally Lewis Medal for the State of Origin Player of the Series. He also captained the Storm to the Premiership and won the prestigious Golden Boot Award, recognising him as the best player in the world.

The accolades have continued to pour in for Cameron in recent years. He has since enhanced his leadership credentials by captaining both Queensland and Australia. 2011 saw him receive another Wally Lewis Medal, he won the Dally M Hooker and Captain of the Year honours and was also named Hooker of the Year at the RLIF Awards. And, in 2013, he added yet another Melbourne Storm “Player of the Year” award, a further three Dally M awards and captaincy of the Kangaroos for the Rugby League World Cup to his impressive list of achievements.

Queensland's win in Game III of the 2014 State of Origin series made Cameron the first player in State of Origin history to win 20 games. In the 2015 Origin Series opening game, Cameron Smith was awarded “Man of the Match” for the fifth time in his Origin career and the series also saw him equal the record for most State of Origin games played. Then, on 17 July 2015, Cameron became the Melbourne Storms' first 300-game player and only the 24th player in the history of the NRL to achieve such a feat.

In 2016, Cameron was awarded his sixth man of the match award in Origin 2 and the Wally Lewis medal as the player of the series for the fourth time at series end.

In 2017, Cameron reached 2,000 career points, becoming the first forward, the first Queenslander, and just the fifth player in history to have achieved the milestone. Also in 2017, Cameron played his 365th match and thereby became NRL’s most capped player of all time.

In 2019, Cameron became the highest point scorer in the history of Rugby League, and is on the cusp of becoming the first person to play 400 games.

A champion both on and off the field, in his HSV, Cameron is ready to tackle anything life throws his way!
