I've never seen Smith have as many injuries as last year. If he goes down for extended periods I think they struggle. B Smith is a good replacement but not the same.

Cameron Smith signs two-year deal with Melbourne Storm

Cameron Smith, 36, is set to become the first NRL player to reach 400 games after signing a two-year extension with Melbourne Storm on Wednesday.

The former Test and Origin captain is just 16 games short of the magical milestone that seemed unattainable not that long ago.

You've got to wonder whether that's two... or at least one... years too long.

If he decides he has had enough and wants to call it quits at the end of 2019 I guess he could use that final year of his contract as leverage for a job after football deal at the Storm in 2020, which then wouldn't be added to the salary cap.

It also means he’ll overtake Bill Harrigans record for most NRL matches refereed this season

Melbourne Storm re-signs Sandor Earl for two more seasons

Sandor Earl has been given two year contract extension to end 2020. After a four year suspension for performance enhancing drug breaches, the Storm signed him for the 2018 season, but an ACL tear in pre-season delayed his return. He then played nine games for the Sunshine Coast Falcons in the Queensland Cup, missing out on a first-grade call up from Craig Bellamy.
